Comic Art Postcard
Martin Bigum Artist
This great Dutch postcard features a reproduction of a painting by Danish artist Martin Bigum. The image, titled The Song, is of a scared monk on a hillside.
Bigum, once an artist for the Danish version of Mad Magazine during the 1980s is now much better known for his paintings.
"His work is focused on uniting High Art and Low Art in comic-style paintings. Unlike former pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, his aim is not to show the emptiness of pop culture, but rather its fullness. His ambition is to create his own mythology through art." - Wikipedia
The postcard (shown here front and back) is number 5 in a postcard series titled Literary Body.
