We Lived Like Kings
Ongoing project by Emil Kozak (Denmark, 1980). These pieces are primarily made from found images, or a mix between several. Most of them have been found in the endless stream of “funny” photos that are being spread all over the internet. I have chosen the ones, that for me seem to have an underlying meaning. Since these images are usually being consumed and thrown away into cyperspace at rapid speeds, I thought it made sense to paint or draw them, so an actual physical example would exist.
