The Swift Heart Rabbit, 2022 , Acrylic and marker on canvas, 86 x 58.5 inches

Slovenian born artist Matija Bobicic's paintings are created in the memories of his childhood. Matija first began expressing himself by drawing cartoon characters based on the television cartoons of the 1980s and 1990s, as well as the toys and ephemera of that period in time. His paintings reflect a childlike curiosity - the figures are flat, outlined with a prominent contour and the surface is composed of bright, often contrasting, fields of color. His characters give the impression of being enormous, positioned firmly in a wide stance creating imagery of gigantic cyborgs and monsters that stand before the viewer like modern day Colossi acting as creatures of our time and for our time.
