4. Eric YAHNKER – Artist

With a bottle-feeded generation with mainstream culture, bombarded with clips, ads, magazines and blockbusters, the artist Eric Yahnker rushes into the breach without a net and without complex. Ace of the pencil, he draws 2 meters high lampoons that jeopardizes religion, politics, icons and symbols of today’s America with a stunning realism. Provocateur (or genuine) and without restraint, he was animator for the South Park movie after graduating from Cal Arts and has done the animation for the Seinfeld DVDs bonus. Trained in a school of journalism, he worships cartoonists like Paul Conrad, Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, but also cites Woody Allen and Mel Brooks as references. His works offer a double reading, from the simple visual impact of its giant drawings to their meaning and look on American society. Whatever our perception as long as we see his works as he defines himself “political, stubborn, absurd, sarcastic, cerebral, perverted, jack-ass with a heart of golden testicles.”
