Erró: Black and white


Many people are familiar with Erró's colourful paintings, but not many connect him to black and white artwork. However, during his long career, he has now and again done black and white paintings, some of them enormous. Even so, it wasn't until 2014 that he decided to paint a whole series in black and white. He made multiple collages from different pictures, mostly in full colour, and printed them out in black and white. These digital prints became the basis of his new work. 

The material is diverse and it is safe to say that it covers most of the artist's interests, but Erró is known for his unbridled enthusiasm for most things between heaven and earth. Here, he has created powerful pieces, inspired by the cartoon world and art history. These paintings are brimming with sarcasm and humour towards social issues and human nature.
