WAM November 5-6 Adrian Norvid
Montreal-based artist Adrian Norvid was born in the UK and emigrated to Canada as a youngster. His work is a mix of hillbillies and louts who inhabit the fantastic realms he creates. Known for his tongue-in-cheek sense of humour and painstaking attention to detail, Adrian’s large scale drawings are saturated with imagery and patterns that break cultural and historical boundaries. His works bring together everything from 1960s psychedelic graphic design to Rococo ornamentation to food packaging.
Herr Krank doesn’t talk to the media, so I met Adrian next to the admittedly chic billboard to talk about the upcoming extravaganza.
