The fantastical French artist Theo Mercier is opening "Oil Now" at the Envoy Gallery in NYC tonight, and it looks to be a feat of awesome surrealism: crazily pasted photos, painted-on collages, and installation works made with stuff he found at flea markets and on the street. Mercier has worked with forward-thinking designer Bernard Wilhelm and Matthew Barney, who we're assuming you've heard of. Go read this interview with Mercier on his friend Diane Pernet's site, where you can also see his pretty epic collage of a seagull landing on a giant hamburger while a wave crashes behind it.
