Cool Thing We Want #268: Paco Pomet’s Painting Of Cookie Monster As A Mercenary

Digging the stuff of Paco Pomet today. Check much more of his work here.

Imbued with the nostalgia of a time past, the work often appears in a monochromatic color palette, a choice that echoes the sepia toned photography of the early 1900’s. This choice enhances the realistic yet haunting landscapes in which the artist tinkers with the ‘real’ world by creating odd characters with abnormal deformities, unlikely pairings of anthropomorphic creatures and humans, and shrunken figures living in relative harmony with their ‘normal’ counterparts. While the surreal elements add a sense of narrative, the paint application shows off an interesting optical texture creating work that is both visually and thematically stunning.
