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

Erro (Icelandic, b. 1932), alias of Gudmunder Gudmundsson, is a Pop-artist. Erro uses cartoon characters taken from various sources in his collages, which are often juxtaposed with historical figures such as despots and Greek Gods. Erro’s extensive travels throughout Europe and North and South America provided a significant source of inspiration. After attending art school in Reykjavik, he continued his studies at the Florence Academy of Art in 1954 followed by the School of Byzantine Mosaic Art in Ravenna in 1955.
