Pavel Pepperstein

Big feet of Freedom, 2013 Europa in Trouble, 2013 In our days no political decision is possible without extra-terrestrial control, 2013 Fucking civilization of skyscrapers kills the joy of life and turns everything into a sickening cretinism, 2013 The political dimension is entering the aesthetical field, 2013 Big Bro is not watching you, 2013 Well now, that’s enough! All nations are now sliding into the abyss. Back to the pits that spawned you, you fucking predators – nature’s killers, 2013 We are all waiting with impatience for the appearance of a political power which will stop scientific and technological progress, 2013 The suffering face of the modern capitalism, 2013 The political consequences that came as a result of the actions of this boy were far more monstrous than the devastation wrought by the natural disasters and financial crashes which followed, 2013 Jews of All the World! Help us!, 2013 Lord Merlin and Political Fairy, 2013

In Pavel Pepperstein’s inventive, figurative drawings political and cultural symbols are set in fantastical scenarios. In this new series of work he comments on the present state of the world with sardonic wit, surrealism, and criticality. Problems of capitalism and democracy, the troubles of Europe, and animals threatened with extinction are transformed into visual stories, in Pepperstein’s characteristic sinuous, psychedelic, fluid style.
