MARCEL DZAMA "LADY BEAR" DRAWING, 1998

$5,000

With his specific vision, and his unmistakable version of contemporary Surrealism, Marcel Dzama became one of the most internationally successful Canadian artists with his delightful illustrations and signature style.

Born in Winnipeg in 1974, Dzama had an international reputation by the time he was 30. 

In the 1990's, as one of the founding members of the Royal Art Lodge, Dzama contributed to  the renaissance of figurative art and simultaneously 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 or characters and injects them with menacing, eerie or twisted details that often border on the absurd. 

For example, how do you understand a naked woman in a bear costume?

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.
