Iran-born, Sweden-based artist Omid Delafrouz’s work is a mix of pencil drawing and digital prints, packed with vivid contemporary reflections. The artist says that with the image of Pop art has an enormous party, he sees his own works as “the morning after the party when Pop art wakes up in confusion and hungover.”
American artist Renée French draws endearing portraits of bizarre creatures that look like dark versions of fairytale characters. First featured in an insert for Hi-Fructose Vol. 35, French considers herself a “graphite addict”, who keeps a child-like innocence about her adult graphic novelist and comics rooted works. Her fantastical imagery is in part inspired by Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch, especially the macabre and nightmarish depictions within his fanciful world. She will debut her latest series at La Luz de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles on October 2nd.
