Joan Cornella x AllRightsReserved Release "FWEN” Sculpture and “I HOPE I DIE SOON" Print
We consider ourselves a magazine that likes to celebrate a bit of cheeky darkness. No artist seems to capture our sarcastic desire quite like Spanish artist, Joan Cornellà, who constantly and consistently sets a bar for crude and outlandish sentiments as well as taking us to a dark and playful place. With his near 3m IG followers, it seems like the world needs a little darkness.
So... perfect timing then. Today in Hong Kong, Cornellà is set to release a new 8.7-inch vinyl figure, “FWEN,”and edition print “I HOPE I DIE SOON," with AllRightsReserved. These new works inspired from his well-known comic strip have given way to a stereoscopic piece, with the artist’s signature motifs. The FWEN character comes from a six-part Cornellà comic published in 2018 that depicts... you know, the normal stuff that friends do together. The release will happen at 11PM Eastern Time, October 15, 2020 at ddtstore.com.
“I HOPE I DIE SOON” features the signature positive-negative response to our irrational world. The humorous negative philosophy is evolved from the book“I Hope You Die Soon: Words on Non-Duality” by the humanistic psychologist Richard Sylvester in 2006, illustrating harrowing action for helpless moments in our lives.
