Are you always burning the midnight oil and keeping your nose to the grindstone to make ends meet? Before you put another nail in the coffin and take one for the team, know that the end doesn’t justify the means.

Artists are usually esteemed for their creativity and innovation. This August at Con Artist we’re celebrating 5 creatives who are démodé and seriously cliché. “Thinking Inside the Box” shows off tchotchkes by artists who aren’t afraid to be a little tacky and who enjoy a good old fashioned pun. Many of the artworks are, in fact, inside of boxes.

Every cloud has a silver lining with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and plenty of fish in the sea. Leave your mark! A picture is worth a thousand words in a Kodak moment in a New York minute. You can’t stop it, you can only hope to contain it. Featuring work by: John Arzayus, Jasper Fields, Josef Pinlac, Jessica Prusa and Katie Killary
