St.Louis, IL, March 23, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- St.Louis Metro, March 21,2012 Cappy Sue Creations- Etsy artist, Cappy Sue -- infamous for paintings of jovial penises, her unique service “Jazz Up Your Crap, and works of art that inspire passionate hate mail -- announces the release of new coffee table book, “Art Cave Collection.” Conceived from the demand for an explanation of her creative process and the phenomenon of public interest, this anthology includes never-before-seen work and pieces from private collections with insight and commentary from the artist. Art Cave Collection will be available for purchase on March 16, 2013, through website blurb.com.
Cappy Sue’s work has a range of influences – from childhood to dreams and pop culture. Her paintings depict narratives that feature strong adult content and satire, with subject matter including Michael Vick, the eating of afterbirth, and male anatomy as protagonist. "My work is all about making people feel strong emotions. If I can make someone laugh and someone else feel rage then it is a good day,” she explains.
Artist Cappy Sue vaulted to Internet infamy in 2009, after being featured on parody website, Regretsy, where she and her art became regularly celebrated. She has since been featured on Buzzfeed, Daily Dot and the Huffington Post, where her unique service, “Jazz Up Your Crap” received viral attention. But even Cappy Sue contends her work is not for everyone. “I don't make my work for the mainstream,” she says. “I have no problem with folks not loving it.”
