H.O.P.E. artwork in print


Artist H.O.P.E. sent OZON his collection of illustrations and photographs titled ‘thesewarsareoutburstofhypnosisonlythemasksareforreal’. H.O.P.E,’s identification is unknown; a mask melted onto his face enables him to create expressionistically through his alter ego.  Videos, photographs and expressionistic drawings of an ‘infertile ritual’ heighten the curiosity of this animalistic universe. Printed in Liege, Belgium by snel graphics, this innovative collection is said to be ‘clinically dirt, but sentimentally clean’ H.O.P.E. ‘tries to achieve a ‘catharsis’ from apathy.’
