We love Alan Miknis's wry, tender and beautifully rendered paintings. Each fantastical pair in the series offers a glimpse of the oddness of people's accomodations to the mundane, and their fantasies of something bigger than everyday life—even if it's just one other person with a similar slant on the world.
Alan Miknis lives and works in San Francisco's Mission District. He is currently working on "Cave Dwellers", "Middle-Americana", the comic "Sober Drunkerer" and various kinetic scroll paintings.
