MARCEL DZAMA "DRACULA BOY SCOUTS" LITHOGRAPH, 2005
Marcel Dzama is a versatile and distinctive artist known for his illustrations and unmistakable style.
Born in Winnipeg in 1974, Dzama had an international reputation by the time he was 30.
As one of the founding members of the Royal Art Lodge, in the 1990's Dzama contributed to both the renaissance in appreciation of figurative art but also put Winnipeg on the map as a center for Canadian creativity.
Dzama's works are instantly recognizable for their subject and style. He often takes banal scenes and injects them with menacing, eerie or twisted details that often border on the absurd.
"Dracula Boy Scouts" is a paradigm of Dzama's style and creepy/amusing subject matter.
This work is one of 20 hand-drawn lithographs from his "Count Dracula's Cabin": a collection of images that depicts the activities, whether sinister or leisure or a combination of both, happening at the vampire's imagined wood-cabin retreat.
Dzama's work can be found in a host of prestigious public and private collections including Paris' Centre Georges Pompidou, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the MoMA, Le Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. He is particularly favored by celebrity collectors including Brad Pitt, Jim Carrey and Steve Martin.
Marcel Dzama is represented by David Zwirner in New York.
