“As viewers will discover in Jim Shaw: The End is Here, a mind-blowing show at the New Museum, Mr. Shaw does Surrealism, Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, Conceptualism, cartoons and comic strips, psychedelic posters and kitschy illustration styles with an endlessly inventive comedic twist." -New York Times
