The Work of Belgian Collective, Hell'O MonstersIllustration // Monday, 11 Jun 2012
Hell’O Monsters is a Belgian collective formed by Jérôme Meynen, François Dieltiens and Antoine Detaille . The three artists successfully blend their individual styles to create an imaginary universe occupied by hybrid characters such as monsters with multiple eyes, mutated animals, humans with their heads split open. These figures manage to grab our attention and gain our affection despite their revolting appearance. In addition to the ink drawings and the paintings, the Hell’O Monsters universe breaks away from the wall and these miniature extra-ordinary beings suddenly occupy the exhibition space. The group’s creations, despite their colorful and happy look, are in fact caustic commentaries on the adult world, human nature and society.
