DESCRIPTION :
Life's ironies are easier to take in with a sugar coating. This coating entertains, and acts as a remedy for the bitter truth while you die laughing. Brimming with cheerful colours, juxtaposed details and quirky characters, illustrations of dark humour weave together a twisted yet oddly familiar narrative we can all empathise with. Off the Wall amasses 30 some artists whose works are as somber as they are hilarious. Look at how satirical ideas play out in imagery to voice societal concerns, reflect on human nature or simply as a candid expression of the artist's peculiar creative universe. Through short interviews and a carefully edited showcase, the book takes readers to explore artists' enigmatic minds as they give insight into how they walk the fine line between being funny and unsettling.
