MARCEL DZAMA "CABIN OF COUNT DRACULA" LITHOGRAPHS, 2005
Marcel Dzama is a versatile artist renowned for his illustrations and unmistakable style.
Born in Winnipeg in 1974, Dzama had an international reputation by the time he was 30.
Today, his work can be found in a host of prestigious public and private collections including Paris’s Centre Georges Pompidou, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA in New York, and Le Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
Dzama is also particularly favored by celebrity collectors like Brad Pitt, Jim Carrey, and Steve Martin.
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.
“The Cabin of Count Dracula” is a paradigm of the creepy, amusing, and distinctive subject matter that propelled Dzama to international fame.
Dzama’s infusion of eerie, twisted, and sometimes menacing details into otherwise ordinary scenes juxtaposed with the whimsical simplicity of his drawing style with the violence of his scenes.
“The Cabin of Count Dracula” contains 20 hand-drawn lithographs depicting a variety of imagined activities happening at the vampire’s wood-cabin retreat.
Quintessential of Dzama’s eccentricity, the lithographs are housed within a log cabin lined with faux beaver fur and are accompanied by a 9-inch Dracula EP by the artist’s band, “Albatross Note.”
Marcel Dzama is represented by David Zwirner in New York
