Art That Makes Me Happy

Jarvis, by Elizabeth Peyton

If you’ve happen to have visited an Urban Outfitters lately then you’ve noticed the 90s are back. Floral print dresses paired with clunky black boots and flannel. Well here are two of the best things to come out of the 90s together – Jaris Cocker of Pulp painted by artist Elizabeth Peyton in 1996.

The image below is one that hung in all my living spaces from my first dorm room to my final apartment in college. It was my first introduction to this artist, through a spread in some magazine, long since discarded. It still reigns as one of my favorite paintings.
