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.

A2 Poster & Installation
School assignment by: Linda van Deursen
2000

The awesome Linda van Deursen gave each student a different Pantone card with the assignment to search for that specific color in the real world. The tone I had received reminded me of an old warned out chewing gum. Therefore I started chewing and mixing gums like a painter mixes paint. A little bit of red, a little bit of blue...

The gums were stuck under a school chair as if a student had meticulously placed them there, day after day. My jaw ached, but the result was worth it!

A2 poster available for 5€ ex.shipping costs. Send me an email if you are interested
