Mad Swirl is thrilled to introduce a new artist to our Mad Gallery: Jeff “Rip” Bender. Rip’s collage drawings evoke the essence of a wildly imaginative (and a little bit deranged) school art project (in the literal best way possible) — suffice it to say, we’re already huge fans. Bender’s work manages to blend both primitive and sophisticated elements, creating compositions that are both dark and whimsical, seemingly random and yet so perfectly and precisely crafted. Rip’s canvases have all the qualities that you’d expect would turn our heads & we know they’ll turn your head too~ Madelyn Olson
