More than 50 unique works by Neo-Surrealist artist Jim Warren are now available to view and collect from Park West Gallery.
Warren’s first solo exhibition with Park West Gallery, “The Painted Worlds of Jim Warren,” runs until April 21. Take advantage of this inaugural exhibition by visiting us in our gallery or online to find a one-of-a-kind work to add to your collection.
“This body of work includes not only iconic Jim Warren imagery, but also a number of canvases that showcase the evolution of a painter who continues to push himself,” Park West Gallery Director David Gorman says.
Warren is a self-taught artist whose 50-year career includes creating artwork with Disney as well as for book and album covers. Most notably, he created the artwork for Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind” album, which won a Grammy Award for best album package in 1981.
The Park West Gallery collection includes works never before released to the public. Art lovers can view the collection online or visit the gallery’s Southfield location to experience them.
“Park West Gallery is pleased to showcase the largest collection of original paintings ever offered by this Grammy Award-winning artist,” Gorman says.
The Fame-Wall project celebrates celebrities who have made a significant contribution to the entertainment and arts industries. The project sought out Warren’s talents to create portraits of celebrities such as The Beach Boys, John Stamos, Kelsey Grammar and Kristen Chenowith. Examples of Warren’s portraiture work are available in the Park West exhibition.
Warren’s surreal style is influenced by Salvador Dalí and Andy Warhol, and draws upon the narrative style of Norman Rockwell. He says the inspiration for his art comes from loving music by bands like the Beatles and The Beach Boys.
“The songs and the way they have a message, whether it was about romance or it was about fun on the beach…I just convey it with a paintbrush and a canvas,” Warren says.
