DESCRIPTION

Rage Screenprint

Fine art screen print of a calligram of the word Rage taking the shape of a wild boar. The piece was inspired by Studio Ghiblis’ “Princess Mononoke” and specifically Nago, the corrupted boar god, who is possessed by, and ultimately consumed with rage. It turns out the humans living nearby are to blame for this. They shot Nago with an iron bullet causing its fury and destruction. I see the tale as a metaphor of the way we humans treat nature and the problems that we cause for ourselves by doing so.

It got me thinking about the raw emotion of rage in general and how it seems to eat up things from the inside like a great storm. These ideas inspired the piece. I combined aggressive, bold letters and wild interweaving strokes with my own version of Nago. As a tribute to a raw emotion, to Nago and the tale of Princess Mononoke.

Designed and screen-printed in Barcelona on 250g textured Fedrigoni paper.
