Jur de Vries

iconic characters dissected

Jur’s paintings are influenced by animations and comics but instead of evoking happy childhood memories they contain a much darker symbolism. Jur dissects iconic characters and then reconnects them again in ways that renders them hardly recognizable. The scenes are disturbing and bizarre and the once so innocent characters become addicts, schizo’s and perverts in Jur’s composed paintings. His paintings lure us in and once he has caught our attention, we are confronted with the darker side of society which is much closer to the truth.
