Hell'o Monsters - Deaf Dumb and Blind

pop surrealism/lowbrow

The Hell’O Monsters collective emerged in the late 1990s and has since developed a highly idiosyncratic graphic vocabulary that is both complex and ambiguous. Jerôme Meynen, François Dieltiens and Antoine Detaille draw upon the iconography of fairy tales, fables and other mediaeval allegories, mythologies, and esotericism and surrealism in creating brief narrative sequences populated by a fantastic, often grotesque bestiary of animals, skeletons, imps and odd, human-like creatures. The dichotomy and paradox prevalent in their work plays with themes like death, hope, frivolity and failure, at once humorous and mocking. With an introduction by Christophe Veys. 136 p, ills colour & bw, 16 x 22 cm, hb, English
