Bruegel in Brooklyn

Frog Wars Part 1-1. watercolor on paper, 20" x 28" together .2012
蛙蛤大戰 1。 2012 - painted by Mu Pan
Brooklyn-based Mu Pan paints with incredible attention to detail. Appreciating "folk-art" his work echoes Pieter Bruegel the elder and Hieronymus Bosch. Coming of age in the Bush-era and watching my country execute pre-emptive war gives me a similar sense of bitterness and, like Mu Pan, the enduring desire to remain independent. I created this blog as an unhindered outlet for me and I hope to maintain it as such until I am no longer able to control it. Thanks to iO9 for sharing his work!
