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 Parool asked me to illustrate an article about Holland Casino and the fact that despite their attempt to sell themselves as a glamorous Las Vegas party type casino, they are actually full of lonely depressing gamblers. Basically, they are fallen glory, they are going down!

I decided to empty my hoover and throw some dust on a castle of cards. To represent an abandoned place. But because I had used miniature cards to build the castle, it looked all of a sudden like a 9/11 type explosion in a building. A dramatic and pleasant visual surprise!
