William Hogarth

William Hogarth ( 10 November 1697 – 26 October 1764) was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic, and editorial cartoonist who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art.

His work ranged from realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called “modern moral subjects”. Knowledge of his work is so pervasive that satirical political illustrations in this style are often referred to as “Hogarthian”

Very funny stuff from a man who saw into the foibles of human nature.

 





Marcin Owczarek

It appears that the post-apocalyptic world has almost become a genre in art. The first thing  you notice about Owczarek’s work is the lack of colour. The greys, tans, and sepia tinges give the pieces a world weary look. As if someone had landed on our planet and discovered some old photographs. The second thing I noticed was the layers. There are many levels to each piece as if skin were being peeled. Torture? The third thing (there is always a third thing) is the lack of humor. The world is bland but the work is not.
