Al Burian Goes To Hell

Al Burian Goes To Hell

by Al Burian

A loose comic interpretation of Dante’s Inferno; Al Burian places himself as protagonist, journeying through a hell based around his own personal torments at the time: work, art school, the meaning of life, grazing in the bulk bins at Safeway, the endless pontificating on literary criticism, and the concept of making a college thesis about making a college thesis. The big question being “is marking up pieces of paper expressing something that ‘was’ in the artist or just marking up pieces of paper?”
