Rosalia Banet

Browsing from one website to another I finally found something I'd like to post on here. A Madrid-based artist, Rosalia Banet, who's currently having her exhibition at the ARCO Contemporary Art Fair, Madrid. Her choice of characters and stories are quite dark but the use of colours do soften it nicely.

The Siamese sisters Sara Li and Ana Ka are her two main characters. Recently, they celebrated their birthday party. They invited Eli Love -the girl who goes around with a stone on her head; The Crying Girl, their old friend Penis Boy and The Chocolate Man whom they end up devouring. On the table, cake topped with eye balls, baby brain and other offal delicacies.

More details...
