Miro King

A fundamental part of King’s practice are masks, which he utilises for his mythological as well as social satirical narratives. These masked figures are mostly inspired by various fairy tales, pop-cultural references and emojis. The depicted scenarios in his paintings are highlighting society’s issue with consumerism, vanity, escapism and temptation. King works with multiple layers of oil paint, utilising the negative space to reveal the figures and eventually, scratches onto the wet surface. This scratching stage goes hand in hand with his more improvised and playful approach.
