Vacon's portfolio of his 2008 artworks shows us a disquieting world where everything we know has mutated into something sick and slimy. Nothing is safe in his hand: even the most harmful or harmless icons (from Adolf Hitler to Mickey Mouse and Laurel & Hardy), even the common people. Maybe a metaphor of the actual crisis, maybe an intelligent game about percection and self-image, maybe both, surely an astounding journey into an universe we shouldn't pass by, if we care about ourselves.
Born in 1982, in 1994 has lost his left little finger. Graduate in Cinema Critics, in 2008 starts to draw and becomes immediately known across the internet.
