Ganzeer is a maker of Concept Pop, a kind of cultural insurgency that can be seen in his wide-ranging output, be it installations, prints, paintings, videos, objects, guerrilla actions in public space, writing and also comix. Art in America has referred to his practice as "New Realism," while the New York Times called him a "chameleon" and the Huffington Post placed him on a list of "25 Street Artists from Around the World who are Shaking Up Public Art." Sci-Fi Addicts also suggested that he may be one of "5 Comic Book Writers Who Could Continue Alan Moore's Legacy." His current project is a sci-fi graphic novel titled THE SOLAR GRID, which has awarded him a Global Thinker Award from Foreign Policy in 2016. This semester's Frederic W. Goudy Lecture in Book Arts is sponsored by Scripps College Press and is made possible with the support of the Scripps College J. C. Harper Lecture Funds.
