“Art is anything you can get away with… destroy it all.” Welcome to THE ELECTRIC SUBLIME–where art history, madness, and expression meet in a Pollock-splatter of thrilling crime adventure! When a mysterious change in the composition of a famous painting begins poisoning the minds of its spectators, Margot Breslin–director of the Bureau of Artistic Integrity–must pull famed “art detective” Arthur Brut out of a mental institution and back into the insanity that sent him there in the first place.
