CEREALART x Marcel Dzama

Marcel Dzama's Melting Snowman canisters were inspired by a series of personal autobiographical drawings and paintings allegorically documenting his move to New York from Winnipeg. Three of the 4 ceramic snowmen have an airtight lid and are designed to store spices, coffee, candy, broken dreams, etc. 

Marcel Dzama's small and delicate drawings, hand-tinted with watercolor and rootbeer, have an eccentric aesthetic sensibility. The compositions of cartoonish creatures combine references that are at once intellectually highbrow and reminiscent of retro pop culture from the Roaring 1920s and 1950s, that Dave Eggers described as "two percent wit, ninety-eight percent fragile, fragile beauty."

In exhibitions throughout the Americas and Europe, Marcel Dzama's humor has instantly generated a fan club of admirers. His various recurring characters simultaneously represent archetypal innocents and reckless perverts. 

"His strength lies in his drawing, especially in the emotional precision of his facial expressions, and in the deadpan way he portrays an inner life that is probably only slightly stranger than average" - Robert A Smith, The New York Times
