En savoir plus sur l’œuvre
The work "Imagination" is a truly extraordinary piece: originally, it is a mural of more than twelve meters long on the wall of a grocery shop in Oklahoma City. But above all, it is the complete restitution of what Frenemy represents, his universe, his sensitivity, his life!
The starting point is this child who reads sitting down, caught up in the story and the adventures told. This is immediately followed by the exploded, exalted vision that these adventures give to the child. We see the landscapes travelled through - forests, mountains and other luxuriant jungles, the creatures encountered - the blue unicorn, the smiling bees, the mocking pumpkin, to name but a few, not forgetting the recurring characters such as Kimbop, who walks and waves, holding his grey bundle, and the living pencil.
The colours create a soft overall harmony while at the same time making each element stand out. Rich in detail, the work is an invitation to dive into the world of the artist Frenemy and enjoy, like us, discovering here a butterfly, there a flower or crystals.
Frenemy embodies, through this magical work, the whole creative universe of the children he has chosen not to leave, for our adult happiness.
