During the Christmas holidays, I went to an art exhibition at Konsthall Märsta that celebrated the work of Shaun Tan, an Australian artist, writer and film maker.
Rabbits are often portrayed in his body of work so naturally I went to see the lithographs and movies that were on display in the gallery.
Shaun’s style is wonderfully bizarre and imaginative. It is sometimes surreal, yet it has always has a sympathetic quality. It feels like a mix that you have gotten if you would have mixed René Magritte and Michael Sowa with Tim Burton. Artistic characteristics that resonate with me.
If you are interested in seeing more, go and visit the exhibition @konsthall_marsta or pick the up the book “The Rabbits” that Shaun co-wrote together with John Marsden.
