“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.

Uur van de waarheid

(Hour of truth)

Show Explanation

The basis of the drawing is a clock in the middle and two completely different worlds. At the top, a nail splits the earth in two. All the air in the universe escapes through the opening.

The face of the left world is unhappy, black and glum. Because of the burning of fossil fuels (oil derrick below) the world is on fire. Ice melts on the polar caps. The wave in the middle indicates tsunami flooding. Whoever can escapes with space ships.

In the center we see an observer and the eye of god. A ray of the sun behind the eye of God hits the clock at twelve o’clock. The two large arrows in the clock that point downwards are actually two large stop signs. God stops the madness now.

The face of the world on the right is happy. Fresh pure air is pumped in via two oxygen bottles, and blown. The poles are covered with ice again and the earth is saved (two halves stitched together). The continents are now pure again. The earth hangs on a parachute (being saved).

Thanks to god, who has marked the hour of truth we are saved.
