Born in Concrete
Derek Stenning creates great Sci-Fi illustrations for the likes of Endeavor Snowboards but with a really unusual angle. The artworks have evolved around research into ‘Entartete Kunst’ (Degenerate Art), a term adopted by the Nazi regime in Germany to describe virtually all modern art.
“I find these discriminating ideas absurd, but I have adopted the Judeo-Bolshevist theme in this work (the cosmonauts, the hexagram etc.) as a starting point to create these images. As mentioned in a previous post this project is about returning to a more expressive way of creating art (after 10 years as a production artist), and about overcoming my own discriminating views on expressive art.”
