Mudwig Dans


Opening this month at DreamBagsJaguarShoes (MySpace) in London is an exhibition by the influential Bristol-based artist Mudwig Dans. Dans has developed a reputation as an innovative yet elusive underground artist. Infusing an aesthetic rooted in 20th-century propaganda posters, illustrations and animation, Dans daringly juxtaposes found photographic imagery with experimental computer-based alterations. The subversive images contained in the work reference forms often found in Disney and Dr. Suess animations. The hybrid forms adorn media, ranging from computer animations and billboard subversions to canvases and wall paintings. The artist has previously exhibited “Talking Walls” at Bristol’s Arnolfini and has been included in the group show “Hollywood Remix” at the Wooster Collective Arts Space in New York City.
