More information about this artwork

Emerging in the early 1980s East village art scene, the American contemporary artist George Condo explores the hybridization of traditional old masters’ physicality with American Pop culture’s sensibility. As a visual artist, Condo is very versatile in his style of representation. His unique artistic approach, initially dubbed ‘Artificial Realism’, generates worlds between the real and the imaginary, depicting narrative scenarios that allude to hundred years ago but still are very contemporary.

This hard ground etching is a perfect example of Condo’s emblematic cartoonish aesthetic, in which a bunch of deconstructed portraits of his recurrent cast of imaginary characters scream at us with raving joy and anger, in what seems to be an insane and illogic theatre of life. The swelling, giant orbs and the mechanical, stiff mouths are already part of our contemporary imagery. The admirable range of different lines present in this artwork attributes a more ambiguous sense of texture.
