FeAtUrE: Sauerkids!

Love the works of Mark Moget & Taco Spima! Their twisted amalgam of collage and paint makes my day. 

Sauerkids is Mark Moget and Taco Sipma, an artist duo based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Besides their current day jobs as graphic designers, they started the label Sauerkids on the side as an outlet for their non-client based work. Their character based art has been shown in several international art exhibitions and projects.

They've been accused of "being on medication" but in the end their work is probably better described as a combination of innocent childhood imagery and the mental confusion of everyday life.

IdN Magazine about Sauerkids (Pick of the Month, May 2007):[...]"Part sugarcoated daily confusion, part childhood naughtiness. Sauerkids' work strike a chord with adults and kids alike"[...] "Although rumours have it that Sauerkids are drug-fused, they just tend off these accusations with their unique brand of innocence"[...]
