Oliver Hambsch is a South African artist. The complicated past of his country may have some bearing on the complicated present of his drawings and sketches. The gallery shows just a taste of the sometimes morbid, always complex images that Oliver Hambsch illustrates.

In the lead image, Oliver Hambsch has drawn a zombified underwater sailor holding a cleaver. The tattoo on the sailor’s arm, which reads ‘Smile,’ reveals a little humor amidst an otherwise morbid scene.
