I found out today that Viktor Hachmang and I are the same age which, if I’m honest, really pisses me off. I’ve been watching this guy improve and diversify over the past few years with eager anticipation – it’s extraordinary to see what new stands of imagery he adds to his oeuvre with each new update – but was convinced that he had to be at least 35 years old. His style fuses traditional ligne-claire with bright psychedelia, bold abstraction with delicate, figurative mark-making and he switches fluidly between retro-futurism and traditional subject matter. Nobody in their 20s should have such an expert mastery of draughtsmanship and a brilliant imagination to boot. But he does, he REALLY does, and for that he deserves our utmost respect.
