This project was a continuation of the PENGUINS project which has matured by finding new inspiration in comic books, such as ‘Hulk’ and ‘Batman’.
That meant channeling dynamism and energy which lead to using bold colours, rescaling and disproportion.
But there was something more that additionally inspired this project – northern renaissance masters such as Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel.
The scenes shown in their art are extremely dense, have many backgrounds and stories happening at the same time in the picture, which makes the viewer’s eye constantly traveling through the whole painting.Just like in a comic book, right?
PENGUIN’S LIFE… exhibition was prepared specially for the Art Basel Fair 2015.
People are curious creatures…
