Artist Mitch Blunt recently completed a slew of illustrations rendered in sharpy geometrical designs and bright, punchy colors that border on psychedelic. Topical and contemporary best describe the theme of these works. Whether it is a politician berated with microphones or a business-woman working in her office, these pictures are familiar and modern.
Not all of the scenes are strictly business though; one picture depicts dogs posing in yoga positions against a pink-hued tropical background. Another is of a bird -- comprised of human head-shaped feathers -- that flies swiftly against a fuchsia sky decorated with slim clouds.
These works convey whimsy using everyday, contemporary themes. By exploring the familiar through quirky color schemes and cartoon-like drawing techniques, the artist achieves a decidedly surreal effect. It would be interesting if life imitated his art.
