Jeremy Townsend always thought his last name was cursed. Call him superstitious, but Townsend blames his paranoia on the family history.
“We have a bunch of crazy people and terrible stories, so I decided to go with ‘Jert,'” he says.
We first ran into Jert at ICE, and were immediately caught off guard and in awe at his “absurdist pop art.” I mean how often does one see insanely well-illustrated and painted images of Clark Kent dropping acid, “Breaking Bad’s” Walter White dubbed, “The Cook,” (seen after the jump) and R2-D2 realized as Star Trek’s USS Enterprise? After buying three of his pieces, we never saw him again.
