The Royal Art Lodge

The Royal Art Lodge (RAL) was basically a group of canadian art school grad-students (the members called themselves a “self-serving secret society”) from Winnipeg in 1996. Anyway, they all shared a rare unique humor and worked on large paintings and projects together. Their bizarre narratives begin to charm the public and now many of them have set off on solo careers. Their work, although not highly refined, still maintains a certain disarming, intriguing quality, perhaps due to their original content and style. This style is seen more and more today, but you have to realize alot of their work was done in 1996, almost ten years ahead of its time. Here's the link: The Royal Art Lodge
