Diezel LAE LAEHQ Living Artists Emporium

The works in this ongoing series deals with the notion of ‘life’ and what ‘existence’ means in modern society. Diezel uses scribbles, strong lines and dripping paint to express how social, political and religious beliefs, influence our relationships, our multi-cultural societies and ‘Life’.

Popular icons and characters are appropriated as symbols of culture, eg ‘Obelix’, represents ‘Europeans’ and ‘Colonialism’, while indigenous animals represent the continent or background. Scribbles, writings and ‘brand’ icons, provide further insight into the ‘context’ of the theme.
