The hyper-intensity that results when surrealism is applied to the liberated spirit of graphic design is a wonder to behold these days. Take this piece by Niark1, for example. A tableau of morphed figures and animals, it is a colorful rearrangement of familiar energies and evokes the "teeming fun" that one British writer famously ascribed to the microscopic world. But there is also the substance of menace; the two most prominent figures in the painting seem adversarial or (at the very least) none too happy with each other. Plus, the alert viewer will notice that the multi-legged chimera is itself an apparent creation (offspring?) of that mechanical canoid of dubious origin. Teratology has taken a holiday here and Bosch himself would have been pleased with this modest garden of unearthly delights.
Sebastien Feraut, aka Niark1 is a graphic designer, illustrator, and fine artist based in Paris, France.
