'Bartworks' is the latest zine from Japanese illustrative artist Ken Kagami. The 36 page publication sees Kagami's sharp sense of humor applied to a pictorial series of pure ideas featuring Bart Simpson depicted in a variety of usual forms. The zine has been released as a co-production between Swiss publishing house Nieves and Hungarian art publisher Innen.
"Kagami’s distinctive works are characterized by their simple expression of conflicting ideas. Pure and virginal plastic and soft toys created for babies and children are boldly combined with objects, which represent sex, violence and excrement. These two worlds, which naturally never crossover, merge and transform objects into giggle-inducing, amiable, yet bizarre pieces of art which invoke a horrific, natural human instinct. This is achieved through Kagami’s sharp sense of color, form and pure ideas."
'Bartworks' is available to buy through the Nieves online store, priced $8.00
