Felice Zhukov creates hyper detailed pop art tinged with imperialist and religious iconography. She works almost entirely from the imagination to create dystopian scenes that draw the viewer in and invite them to actively engage with each painting. Her work incorporates a vast spectrum of colour, initially generated on the computer and then rendered by hand and applied thinly onto the surface.
Narrative plays a key role in all of Felice Zhukovs work, she utilises a cast of regular characters and her own breed of symbolism to express her observations of contemporary culture. This is an on going process, which over the course of the next few years will blossom into a graphic novel, interpreted through painting, drawing and animation.
There is a kawaii like aspect to her work, the juxtaposition between this style and complex adult themes makes it open to a huge variety of interpretations.
