Artist Uses Imaginary Classic Cartoon Characters In Art Series Against Using Soft Drugs



Paris-based English artist Ermsy is best known for his deconstruction of cartoon and pop image characters in his series of imaginative work. In one drawing, limbs of Homer, Marge and Lisa are stretched, twisted into a piece sign. Celebrated by galleries worldwide, Ermsy creates an enigmatic and recognizable style that easily stands out from the rest. His love for pop culture has seen him explore it using popular cartoons that provide him a frame to work within.

In his ongoing series, “Say No to Soft Drugs,” he uses characters like Garfield and the pink panther who smoke spliffs while tripping out on their extra hands. Ermsy has developed an aesthetic series that uses the 1980’s cartoons as a rich ground for fighting against drug abuse.
