There Was A Butterfly On Las Vegas Boulevard

Viktor Mattsson

Oil on Wood (framed).
13 x 10.5 cm

The sense of a fever dream-like surrealism spreads throughout the exhibition—distorted anatomies, brimming with coarse personality—showing Mattsson’s protagonists in a range of scenarios both happy and sad. The backdrops to these works often incorporates a surrealistic spatial depiction inspired by the landscapes of northern Sweden, where the artist grew up. From the exhibition Thanks For Laughing.
