Krystopher Sapp – The Great American Horror Show
Like another famous and similarly named artist, Krystopher Sapp works primarily in assemblage. Each has been at it for about the same amount time, and their matching first names (and unusual spellings of each) are one of the great coincidences of the contemporary Post-Pop art world.

Sapp’s work is much more dangerous.

Krystopher Sapp grew up in a household of memorabilia. His father has been a respected collector and dealer of movie goods for decades and his mother is one of the very few restorers trusted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. As one might expect, his knowledge of classic film runs deep and his lexicon is large. The Great American Horror Show is a tribute to his favorite films from his favorite genre, and avoiding cliché has become his trademark.
