Danish illustrator Rune Fisker draws chaotic scenes that feel like a single moment out of a larger story. The figures often occupy these compelling-yet-confusing spaces with the distinct feeling that they’re being watched. Part dystopian novel with an M.C. Esher-like approach to composition, we can’t help but wonder what Fisker is trying to say about the state of society. But, as he reveals to WERTN, he doesn’t completely know. “I’m sorry to say that I don’t have any hidden messages, or am consciously trying express certain views about the world. I like that the work I do for myself comes from my subconscious, that I’m never quite sure what it means. I like it when I can surprise myself with my drawings.”
