Oscar Grønner shows us a weird world of monolithic figures

Oscar Grønner’s illustrations introduce us to a strange cast of characters. Rendered in a naive style at odds with the more polished aesthetic of his design work, Oscar draws weighty figures in white worlds. Some pose sphinx-like in the desert whilst others gaze out to sea. The almost monolithic quality of Oscar’s childlike illustrations almost recalls the tubular style of Fernand Léger’s semi-abstract paintings. In one image two friends pore over an iPhone dwarfed in fingerless hands resembling oven mitts, and in another, a naked and neckless character slumped on a table personifies mid-afternoon malaise all too well.
