About the artwork
Riding on the back of an ivory white whale, Pendilo paints a sailor and a siren in a symbolic embrace, the enchanting imagery and childlike, faux naif illustration giving the entire work an air of innocence and playfulness. The exaggerated cool colour schemes and two-dimensional, layered quality of the artist's craft make it seem like it was painted from the pages of a children's storybook, invoking a gentle nostalgia for all who bear witness to his beautiful composition.
