Brendan O'Connell's "Walmart paintings" infuse scenes from the omnipresent American chain with a painterly Pop aesthetic. Wonderbread references Andy Warhol's precise images of mass-produced goods while emphasizing O'Connell's particular concerns with representation through paint. The artist's hand is evident throughout, particularly in the quick brushstrokes on the cheery labeling. This specially commissioned Artspace print presents O'Connell's ongoing interest in how paint activates scenes of everyday life.

Brendan O'Connell is a quintessential American painter who explores the everyday through contemporary art. His work uses binary genres: traditional and contemporary, figurative and abstract, high and low art perspectives, mystical and pop. By exploring an idea through paint, O'Connell allows the concept to dictate the particular style of paintings, making his portfolio eclectic. His Walmart paintings have been collected widely and exhibited in New York, Shanghai, Toronto, Boston and reviewed in Art in America and the Boston Globe.
