“There is another world besides colour”

Daniel Lefèvre is a Belgian artist, currently living and working in São Paulo, Brazil. His motto “there is another world besides colour” reflects his almost exclusively black and white work made using only Rotring Isograph pens to create extensively detailed surrealist artwork inspired by Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, René Magritte and Paul Delvaux.

Nakend einde

(Imminent end)

Show Explanation

The basis of the drawing is a face in a watch projected onto the earth.

In the watch we find the sign of the Freemasons, which stands for wealth and strength.

The big hands of the clock are trees that are struck by lightning representing the deforestation of our green planet. The watch that is glued on the earth is representative of the richest on the earth. When the thermometer goes to the average temperature of 27 degrees, the poles change rapidly by melting. The South Pole consists of fire (actually penguins) which stands for the global warming of the earth. This causes the ozone layer to rise and the poles to melt down (this is what happens at the North Pole). The drops of water in the form of a reflexive sign together with the £ and ¢ sign represent egoism (reflexive sign in mathematics is turned to itself) .

The revolving movement of the whole is slowed down by a manually operated engine, at the bottom in the middle. This means we are gradually moving towards the end.

The rectangular flow shows everything that is possible and that will lead to an early end.

On the top right is the pollution of CO² and propellants. At the bottom right is the atomic energy and its dangers for the environment. At the bottom left, we have a kind of individual who likes to create sprays and an individual that is made up of two parts. The lower part is a rocket with nuclear warheads (body), at the top two terrorist explosives. We see the result at the top, a nuclear explosion. In addition to the nuclear explosion there is a stop sign on the top left.

The stop sign is surrounded by 5 balls. These contain the initials of each continent in the world.

In other words, we have to conduct the same policy on all continents of the world (North America, South America, Africa, Europe and Asia) in order to slow down the global warming of our planet.

The end of our planet is closer than we can imagine.
