Ryo Laksamana Partners With Avant Arte on Two Hand-Finished Prints

Both will be available to purchase through a drawing that closes on May 16 at 9am EST.

Ryo Laksamana, also known as Ryol, is an Indonesian artist who blends his love for anime to create pop surrealist paintings that carry a childlike innocence on first glance, but reveal complex undertones upon further inspection. In the past, Ryol has used his work to critique on a range of topics — from the patriarchal structure of society to modern-day gender roles.

In conjunction with Avant Arte, Ryol will release two new prints that display his far-reaching imagination. The first, FELAX, is a hybrid character made up of Snorlax and Felix the Cat, which was largely inspired by the internet as much as the references themselves.

Similarly, RABBIT CAR ON THE HEAD showcases a whimsical car atop a character that is partly inspired by vehicles shown in the hit Japanese series, Dragon Ball. “The fantasy of the work purely refers to its naivety,” said Ryol in a statement.

Both artworks are giclee prints with silkscreen detail layers including glow-in-the-dark ink and ‘sugarcoat’ glitter, printed on 310gsm Hahnemuhle Photorag paper and individually hand-finished using spray paint. The prints will be available to purchase for $912 USD each through a drawing that will close on May 16 at 9am EST.
