Jealous is proud to present The Odyssey, a show of paintings and prints by New York-based artist Scooter LaForge. This is his debut show in London, curated by legendary DJ Seth Troxler.


Fairytales gone wrong–inhabited by sexy boys and subversive fairies masquerading and transforming into cyclopes, nymphs, magical creatures, angels, and monsters—have always been a natural terrain for Scooter’s paintings.

His 2015 exhibition at Howl! Happening gallery in NYC, How to Create a Monsterpiece, centered around an adaptation of Rembrandt’s The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulpthe doctor’s students morphed into clowns and a blue bear, the corpse now a jester. The show was honored by Forbes on their 10 best list of the year—yet Scooter is able to inspire the popular imagination beyond the constraints of the art world. He travels fluidly between being a painter’s painter and the mores of fashion. His canvas is as shapeshifting as his allegories, be it properly mounted on stretcher bars, body painting, painting on clothing, or directly on walls.

In the Jealous show, Scooter’s painterly adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey merges the existent and the imaginary, just as the latter combined history with ancient Greek mythology.
