Simon Wald-Lasowski makes colorful, fun, twisted work by use of bricolage, word play and ‘cliché bending’. Lighthearted at first sight, his images often reveal a certain depth on second inspection. His approach is always very personal, which blur the boundaries between autonomous and commissioned work.

The 'Kinderboekenweek' is a yearly event promoting children's books in all the bookstores and libraries of the Netherlands.
I was asked to create 'book friends' that would accompany the kids in their world of fantasy. 
These 'friends' are life size, and made out of hundreds of books that we drilled and placed on an articulated metal skeleton!
