Run, Peyote Bud, Run!

Florida-based artist Scott Scheidly knows how to draw a drug pun. At seven, with a taste for school paste, Scheidly lost his thumb “in a Big Wheel accident ending my successful ‘Hand Turkey Period.'” Make your own theories at how he ended up here. His new series at Bold Hype Gallery is a parade of surrealist funnies: Plants sprout from pounding hearts; cyclops mushrooms blink with humanoid peepers; peyote buds take off running. Catch him if you can: Scott Scheidly, Nov 10 – Dec 3, Bold Hype Gallery, NYC
