TRIK© (NL)(NL), 2021 Artwork specially created for this exhibition
Using razor-sharp graphic imagery to create clear and humorous cartoons, illustrations and portraits, TRIK’s work cuts straight to the heart of the matter and strips news, subjects and people down to the bone. It balances on a self-created line between cartoon and graphic design with an unmistakable preference for pop- and street art. TRIK has a reputation for ‘sampling’ iconic images, which he transforms into sharp-edged new school cartoons and illustrations that sometimes have a soothing effect but more often than not their message is disturbing.
