Artist Fights His Own Drawing In Tremendous Art Series

5.jpg

The next time you see an artist scrunch up a piece of paper before lobbing it towards the waste paper basket, spare a thought for whoever might lie wrinkled underneath.
 
We’re only opening your eyes on this on the back of Alex Solis' Inkteraction, an inventive new art series pitting the Chicago based artist vs his on-page creation in a frantic explosion of cartoon violence.
 
Poking, gouging, pulling, whacking - the tormentor in question uses all sorts of techniques to get the upper hand with his 2D opponent, who duly responds in appropriate fashion, biting the thumb of his creator, proceeding to break his iPhone.
 
Cleverly drawn splashes of blood and iPhone damage on paper and off it coupled with shrewd page use designed to appeal to our visual senses only further blur the lines of reality and fiction for this terrific duel, which the sketcher was always going to win.
 
Because, let’s face it, there's nothing more painful than a paper cut.
