Part Situationist revolt and part satire, Scott King’s works are a synthesis of art, design, and advertising, delivered with a pop sensibility. Best known for his screen prints of Madonna in Hitler drag (2003) and Cher’s face inserted into the ubiquitous Che image (2008), King fuses his mastery of a pop culture vocabulary with his cynicism about its consumerist nature by inventing pithy-sounding slogans, bereft of all meaning and sincerity. Among his series of fake Vogue covers entitled “How I’d Sink American Vogue” (2006), King included Kirsten Dunst Says Bombs Kill in large white letters against a black background, as well as a cover model in a black burqa. In addition to his text-based works, King has created dot print works, such as a series inspired by Joy Division concerts, where the ratio of band members to their fans is rendered in black dots, as in Joy Division, 2 May 1980, High Hall, The University of Birmingham, England (1999).
