DIESEL DENIM GALLERY AOYAMA is presenting the first solo exhibition of Mathias, “ALL ABOUT DEMOCRACY” showcasing his best works from cartoons and illustrations for newspapers and magazines. Mathias also created new works in print and film exclusively for this exhibition. Concept: ALL ABOUT DEMOCRACY
“The world is rotten, corrupt and bankrupt and it is not the time to explain the political situation in friendly cartoons”. Mathias draws well-known people in power like presidents and politicians, and develops stories of those characters based upon the current world situation. The cartoons drawn by his keen observation on social circumstances lampoon the current democracy, but also his hope for a better world without poverty, environmental pollution and justice for all can be seen. Mathias makes realistic digital illustrations on his laptop. He works everywhere, at home, in the train, in restaurants and soon in Tokyo.
Date/Time: 2009.11.20 (FRI) ~ 2010.1.31 (SUN)
Location: DIESEL DENIM GALLERY AOYAMA
