Artist Spotlight on Los Angeles-based illustrator Allison Reimold.

by Daniel Barron

 

 

Vixens and viscera are given exquisite life from the mind of Allison Reimold. The LA-based new contemporary illustrator’s bright, often- dreamlike visual style has left a powerful impression on the pop art circuit, with her David Lynch and Wes Anderson-inspired works featured in high-profile venues such as Spoke Art in San Francisco and Gallery 1988 in Hollywood.

In recent years, Reimold has been commissioned to produce official works for film and television releases such as Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer revival, Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween, and the Sofia Coppola film A Very Murray Christmas.

 

On her film influences:
“A combination of David Lynch, Hayao Miyazaki, and John Carpenter’s The Thing. Also, Akira. Basically, anything that can combine beauty and terror into one.”

 

On the best reaction to her work:

“My favorite reaction to my work was along the lines of ‘Secretly, you’ve got a really fucked up mind.’ I think that came from a coworker. It’s true!”

 

Our her most satisfying career moments:
“Probably my favorite subject is one I’ve been fortunate enough to depict many times, both for galleries and for commercial illustration, which is of course Bill Murray. I also love participating in the David Lynch-themed shows that Spoke Art has put on– looking forward to the next one so I can try my hand at a Twin Peaks themed piece!”

 

Enjoy some damn fine art below.
