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.

As always, The Volkskrant calls me for all their sex stories. But I'm not complaining :)
This time the article dealt with the worlds most popular sperm bank, namely, a Danish anonymous sperm bank promising lots of strong blond offsprings to people all over the world.

There is a lack of shame in donating semen in Scandinavia since the act is being seen as a good deed. Although helping parents who can not procreate is an honourable thing to do I wanted to humorously criticise this new Viking invasion by creating warriors who try to sell their genes in a flirty manner.
