Beni Bischof is known for his multi-layered and humorous artistic works that take everyday situations ad absurdum and present the familiar in a new, stimulating way. With two new works created especially for the Edition VFO, Bischof convinces in the familiar manner. Here, viewers are allowed to smile at overlong fingers and question pictorial references between camel humps and the user interface of an image editing program. The outstanding quality of the Fine Art Prints is, as it were, in a humorous dialogue with the depicted motif. The following quotations from the English language press succinctly summarize Beni Bischof's artistic approach:

"Fingers - together with sausages, paint stumps and plaster mounds - are part of the exquisite repertoire of artistic special equipment with which Bischof reverses the logic of the entertainment industry or takes it to the absurd." Frieze Magazine, November 2011.

"With Bishop's interest in anti-aesthetics, the artist practices a form of aesthetic vandalism. ...] The breathtaking thing about these works is that, although they can be slightly repulsive, they are characterized by a fascinating elegance." ART FORUM, February 2013.

"Bishop, a master of de-contextualization, adapts the original images and our associations until they can no longer be separated from their new, altered identity (and reality)." DAZED, September 2013.

With simple strokes and grotesque messages Beni Bischof brings various thoughts to the point in his drawings. The banality of our everyday life and the absurdity of human existence serve him as a source of inspiration. For the Edition VFO, the artist has now selected three works from his large series of drawings and had them produced using screen printing.
