About the artwork
Superimposing the empty silhouette of a renowned cartoon character against the bustling, neon glamour of New York's Time Square with the occasional highlights of splattered paint, Auguste applies his signature cut and paste style on aluminium to incorporate various icons and symbols in an amalgamation of our modern day pop-culture. He juxtaposes the reality of corporate branding against the nostalgic innocence associated with various cartoon characters, playing on our fond sentiments towards such figures, and in the process, challenges our presumptions about contemporary life.
