Cadere innocens

Written by Valentina on . Posted in art, drawing


Cadere innocens is a series of drawings (ink and watercolor) by Mexican artist Kikyz1313:

“The exposed work is based, mainly, in the study of abjection.
Most specifically in the corpse, wich alludes to illness, dirt and waste. It threatens the integrity and stability of the viewer, attracted by the drawings developed from traditional techniques and obsessively intricate in detail, which results in an evocative imaginary, thus being stimulating and pleasant when contemplating, but when assimilated, provokes rejection due to the moral barrier of our social context.
This is done almost exclusively in order to violate the moral basis of the viewer, leading him to dissolve the inconvenience of morality and turning him into an accomplice of the enjoyableness of death.”


Axe shaped lolly moulds

Funny axe shaped lolly moulds from Chillax:

“Ok, so the pillaging could upset the neighbours, but the Vikings did know how to throw a party – and an axe. Which is why we’ve invented these ice-lolly axe moulds. Each one turns out a little ice-axe lolly that makes everything go with a swing and keeps it as chilled as a Scandinavian skinny-dipping in a frozen fjord.”
