monochrom 20th Anniversary Portrait

set-up at MUSA, Vienna.

For monochrom's 20th Anniversary show at MUSA, I created a portrait of founders Johannes Grenzfurthner and Ablinger Franz as they might have been in 1993. The art opening had a "Diorama" theme, so I created a multi-dimensional illustration that exists in two pieces. The artwork was printed and mounted on foam board with the foreground figures mounted 30 centimeters (go, Metric!) in front of the background image. Johannes specifically requested to be depicted brandishing a Logitech handheld scanner. Franz is holding an Apple IIe and a soldering iron. The background consists of various items that seemed to encapsulate monochrom's personality and history.
