How would the addictions of this century look like if they were people? Here’s how AnDeRi imagines them. SMOKE Here he is.
...is a series that I consider particularly important because it’s the first collection developing one single topic in its different aspects. Regardless of our culture and level of education, all of us have fallen into an addiction – even only for a short time – that has left its scars on us.
The main work has been trying to give a face to each of these vices. In the following pages you’ll find out which of them may be considered the main ones for me; the ones by which the whole humanity is brought together.
This does not exclude that in time, new addictions may arise following discoveries (such as internet) or changes and evolutions of a present one. The other reason I am so connected to this collection is because it marks an evolution of my artistic path. You can detect this by observing the differences between Smoke, the first addiction I portrayed, and Fashion, which is the last one (for the moment). Alcohol, for example, is the result of a research on the sign.
During the realization of this portrait I began to let my hand go with the flow, trying to perceive and render shapes, volumes and lights through the scrawl rather than through a structured drawing. More sign, less design.
