Robert Deyber’s surrealist-inspired paintings are known for visual twists on witticisms, euphemisms, aphorisms, clichés and other turns of phrase. The one above, titled “On Top of His Game,” is one of six limited-edition Deyber lithographs newly available at Martin Lawrence Gallery.
“It’s reflective of my life in a way, because I did end up on top,” said Deyber, whose original works sell for many thousands of dollars, and have become favorites among contemporary art collectors and celebrities (including the late Tom Petty). “I had a kick-ass airline career (in marketing) that I loved, and then bottom fell out of my life. So I turned to my paintings, and it turned out the second act was just as good as, or even better than the first.”
Each “On Top of His Game (Vegas)” lithograph is signed by Deyber, and measures 9 inches x 9 inches, $495. Available at Martin Lawrence Gallery at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and martinlawrence.com.
