“Illuminated Manuscripts” is a recent art series by a NYC-based artist that has been gaining attention in the Brooklyn art scene for its unique blend of traditional illuminated manuscript style and contemporary news events. The series, which has not yet been featured in a gallery, presents a thought-provoking and powerful commentary on current events.
One particularly striking piece in the series is called “Ketchup on the Walls” and is inspired by a headline from the Independent, “Donald Trump ridiculed after suffering three major blows in one disaster day: ‘Ketchup on the walls'”. This work uses the vibrant colors and ornate details of illuminated manuscripts to depict the chaos and absurdity of the situation described in the headline.
The artist’s use of the illuminated manuscript style adds an extra layer of depth and meaning to the work, drawing the viewer in and inviting them to consider the events depicted in a new light. This piece, along with the rest of the “Illuminated Manuscripts” series, is a must-see for anyone interested in the NYC and Brooklyn art scenes. Its innovative blend of traditional and modern elements makes it a standout among contemporary works, and its thought-provoking themes make it a powerful addition to any collection.
