In a world of whimsy that has seen a resurgence of the interest in the fantastic, Nemo’s work presents a collision of Zombie Apocalyptic scenes and bright pre-school colors, a marriage of fairytales and the creatures that lurk in Ozzy Osbourne’s drug-addled nightmares. There’s something so beautiful in the faces and images that he paints on the canvas, an underlying aesthetic charm that escapes words, making his surrealistic take on the world, images of part monsters, part delusions and part human subjects a visceral experience that goes beyond the usual ideas of beauty. Welcome to a dirty, gritty, but all so colorful rollercoaster ride down happy trippy town. Welcome to “Beauty is in the Eye of the Tiger”.
