Mordillo is still going strong at the venerable age of 78. His silent humour features love, animals, nature, sports, and man's ultimately futile and hopeless endeavors in a language that is laugh-out-loud hilarious, disarmingly simplistic, graphically faultless and vibrantly colorful.
My favourite work from this exhibition is a piece that was commissioned by Amnesty International. It features a monochromatic townscape and police arresting a man who dares to paint the roof of his house in vivid, wavy pink lines. A brilliant depiction of the tragic rendered in comic language.
The exhibition runs till the 8th of January 2012.
