Came across the artwork by Irving Norman through a birthday gift from a friend. The Dark Metropolis title was a collection of most of his body of work.
I was really amazed by the images that I had in no time spent more than an hour collectively studying for more hidden details therein.
I am not sure why he was simply overlooked by the American art establishment until I read more into his personal and social life and views.
Most surrealist painters of the 1940s through the 60s and into the 80s were fawned after, with Dali paving the proverbial road to riches for avant-garde and original artists.

His work, it would seem, in Irving Norman's regard, was a responsibility more than a profession and talent. Almost all of his works are political in nature, and have really profound gravity in the things they say. Irving Norman died in 1989 and was survived by his wife. Irving Norman (1906 - 1989)
I will now leave it to the artwork for explanation, not my bullshit take. Enjoy.[/i]
