I put a bird on it... 2011 by Greg Carrigan
Greg Carrigan is inspired by the Kienholtz's, Tom of Finland, and Pierre N. Giles. He is a collagist and painter. Finding found objects is his big obsession. 

Recently,  he discovered a love of wood carving and adds touches of assemblage and paint.

Carrigan is a 60 year old gay man who has been a working artist for over 30 years. He carves disco heads,  male nudes,  drag queens and iconic figures that reflect gay culture and everyday life - bringing a whole new theme and disco vibe to wood carving. You can find Carrigan in his studio carving lumber jacks, fishermen, navy men, and gods like Mercury and Neptune. AMG 2011
