Thanks to Beautiful/Decay we get a peek into Allison Schulnik’s studio. Schulnik is one of our favorites…We were introduced to her when she was featured in New American Paintings #55 back in 2004 (Schulnik was also selected for #79 years later).  Since then she has been in countless group and solo exhibitions, she is now represented by fantastic galleries like Ziehersmith in NYC and Mark Moore Gallery in LA, and she even did a video for the band Grizzly Bear. Check out the video below posted by Beautiful/Decay:

“The Queen of lush and juicy paint Allison Schulnik opened up her studio to Beautiful/Decay and Visual Creatures to give our readers insight into the world of sad hobo clowns and her painting and animation process. Allison discusses how her paintings inform her animations and vice versa, the long history of artists in her family, and how Los Angeles allows artists to have quiet time in the studio yet have a community.”
