Creepy Ikea Poster
I thought I was buying a different poster, but when I got home and pulled it out of the tube, I was surprised by...this. Rolled that puppy right back up and it's been living in the tube hidden in a corner ever since.
No longer available for sale from Ikea, as this was part of their 2017 art event.
Per their website:
Amandine Urruty is a French-born master of traditional drawing, known for her ability to create cheerful galleries of deviant beasts. She has gained global attention by creating a distinct dream-like style by combining the bizarre with highly structured and detailed compositions.
Amandine has the ability to combine extremes - often reconciling grotesque outfits with baroque decorum. A believer in ghosts, she has described her work as a mental whimsical labyrinth, a reflection of one’s imaginary life, from dreams to cute nightmares – “a kind of ragout, mixing antique toys and medieval bestiaries…slimy monsters and lots of love.”
Amandine Urruty’s poster reflects her extraordinary ability to combine extremes, using highly structured and detailed compositions to illustrate her surreal and whimsical worlds. “The idea of this particular drawing was to build a mental labyrinth, a reflection of one’s imaginary life, from dreams to cute nightmares,” she says. “It’s a night journey, in a manner of speaking.”
