Art Dorks statement:

Dorks. Isn’t that derogatory? Not from where I’m standing. A dork, nerd, geek, weirdo, whatever, is someone who doesn’t fit into a cleanly defined mold of what a person should be in our culture. It is someone that is usually looked down on for not living up to a standard of normalcy. I think that suits us just fine. The Art Dorks, originally the brainchild web community of Brendan Danielsson, quickly evolved into a collective of artists. Our work is really not easy to define. The influences range from the 1980’s to the 1880’s and we each bring a different feel to the mix. While we tend to associate with the lowbrow kind of thing, don’t define us by that. We all share a love of drawing and whether we make monsters or meat, robots or rabbits, it is work that revels in and celebrates growing up in a pop-culture, sci-fi, kung-fu cornucopia of a culture. We make what we know, and what we know is that life is not always normal. It doesn’t always wear name brand clothes, drink light beer and watch Monday night football. It’s just life. If I can say one thing about our work, it is that it is a celebration of the things we love as people. What else should you make art about?         - Chris Mostyn / Art Dorks
