David Griessel

My artistic practise can be summarised as an act of building a parallel world, one drawing at a time. This imaginary world is called Duskland, and it functions as a space where I get to play around with ideas, characters and narratives. It is not a concrete world that is extensively mapped and coded like Tolkien’s Middle-Earth or Herbert’s Dune but is rather more nebulous and psychological in nature. It shares kinship with Alice’s adventures in Wonderland or Gulliver’s Travels and thus occupies a space in my head that evokes the feeling of a half remembered dream and occasionally even a nightmare.
