A celebration of Jeremy Fish’s love of storytelling, Happily Ever After will inspire chuckles and shivers in equal measure. Gathering paintings, drawings, screen prints, installations and murals from 2008 to 2014, the book communicates Fish’s ability to strike the perfect balance between cute and creepy. Chubby animals and gruff-yet-adorable human characters entwine, forming skulls and threatening sigils from the back alleys of this beloved artist’s imagination. Organized into sections by exhibition or project, such as “Listen and Learn,” an exhibition inspired by 30 stories recorded from “people who lead interesting lives,” and “Where Hearts Get Left,” inspired by by Fish’s appreciation of the City of San Francisco, home to the enigmatic artist for over 20 years. Happily Ever After is the largest, most comprehensive Jeremy Fish monograph ever published.
