Good Books: Andrew Kuo's What Me Worry

by Allison Arieff

March 18, 2011

Can the stuff that keeps you awake at night—bedbugs, loneliness, the New York Knicks—morph into something beautiful? It sure can in the capable hands (and quirky brain) of Andrew Kuo, an artist who renders the mundane into gorgeous, color-saturated infographics, messy/cute paintings, and simple sculptures that minimalist Donald Judd might have fashioned had he been into bright colors, Top Chef, and Dinosaur, Jr. They're all collected in a new monograph, What Me Worry.

Kuo is an endearingly pathetic art and music nerd, long on time, short on female companionship. Lucky us that he transforms all that heartbreak, post-night out headaches, and anxiety into visual awesomeness.
