Artist Spotlight : Hell’o
25 August. 2016
Hell’o is a two-piece collective comprised of graphic artists Jérôme Meynen and Antoine Detaille. Hell’o reinvents their signature monster characters in every medium from wall murals to painted canvas to sculpture. The use of playful pattern sequences & bright colours renders the more revolting side of these characters (mutated animals, disfigured humans) whimsical. Their work represents its generational position in time perfectly by referencing sources as varied as medieval folklore, the esoteric, techno music, the Memphis Design group, 17th century engraving, ancient mythology, and surrealism. The universe of Hell’o inhabits the fine line between youth and adulthood.
