Description

“Indiane” by artist Erró is an epic portrayal of man vs beast. Bearing clear resemblance to the work of Roy Lichtenstein, heavy lines and bold colors are used to convey a sense of urgency and drama. The appropriation of heroes and villains from comic classics populate the background as if inspiring the actions of the work’s primary subjects.

About Erró

Erró (Icelandic, b. 1932), alias of Gudmunder Gunmundsson, is a Pop-artist and pioneer of the painted collage aesthetic. A leader of the Figuration Narrative style, he combines popular cartoon characters, historical figures, and advertisements into vivid, kaleidoscopic collages that comment on mass consumer culture. The Centre Georges Pompidou held a retrospective of Erró’s work in 2010, and a collection of his archives can be found at the Reykjavik Art Museum.
