Zeppelins & bunnies

28 May 2012

In this world of pop surrealism and particular combinations there’s always room for more. Take Nico Kos‘ zeppelins & bunnies series as the latest example of an absurd narrative style taken out of a James Bond movie from the 60s. Who are those bunny-masked engineers, what are they posing for, which Asian hidden island and most important… what are they building all those zeppelins for?

 Clearly influenced by his time spent in Japan, dutch-painter and teacher Nico Kosi has been producing some exotic landscapes over the past year, and while we haven’t heard about any upcoming exhibitions in his native Bergen or Amsterdam, we’re really looking forward to it. More info and bunny secrecy on his webpage.

Double Blind

9 April 2012

One last soul to remember from Drawing Now (with all those Rulliers, Carrasquers, Bezanics, Zsakos or Rumseys) was a Valencian artist represented by the Madrilian gallery Fernando Pradilla (one of the very few foreign galleries to attend the event). We’re talking about Moisés Mahiques’ Double-blind paintings.

Pencil, ink & acrylic compositions with an undefined number of individuals represented in the most chaotic (and often erotic) situations, vicious circles of homo fantasies, sexual excesses and hyper-violent states of mind captured in their purest forms… radicalism was never so beautiful and relaxing, maybe that’s why his paintings are so popular within hospitals and waiting rooms?
