South African-born artist Kendell Geers, presently lives and works in Brussels. He gained international notoriety when he urinated in Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain in Venice, and previously had publicly refused to serve in the South African Defense Force, along with 142 others, and was consequently exiled. Clearly, a force to be reckoned with. Geers is known for work that takes aim at both the art establishment and society in general as well as for questioning our existing moral codes. Working in a wide variety of media, he uses and subverts familiar signs from art history and pop culture.
Above are some of his typographic neon sculptures.
