About his UN Biennale artwork // “Streched Ropes”
UNDERGROUND AQUARELLKA – this is how Rebus describes his individual style, in which he combines well-known scientific phenomena with mystical elements. Occasionally, this results in funny situations that radiate fear and insecurity at the same time. In addition to the two main heroes of his universe, Mr. Rebus and Eden, the Russian artist focuses on the biology of human behavior and the evolution of its everyday norms.
