Gabriel Frugone, Pencilan | comics | en cs de es

“The great illustrator Gabriel Frugone, author of the books “Gabriel Frugone, el mejor dibujante del mundo” (Gabriel Frugone the greatest Illustrator of the world) and “Gabriel Frugone, el artista mas creativo del universo” (Gabriel Frugone the the most creative artist of the universe) is responsible for a new masterpiece under the sobriquet of Pencilan. This great artist, procured by hundreds of countries (see Google), is admired in few of them and paid in almost none.”
It is with this hyperbolic declaration that Gabriel Frugone, known better as Pencilan, begins his blog (www.pencilanblog.blogspot.com). There, he provides plenty of commentaries about his work as an illustrator, comic and design artist—a reflection of his own personality.
Born in Uruguay, Gabriel Frugone arrived in Mexico a couple of years ago. I remember that when asked about his visit, he responded ambiguously, with a wry smile, that he came only to “know and see what there is to do.”
I do not know if the “see what there is to do” includes the physical, mental and sexual deviations we can find in his latest comics. If that were the case, there would be several other instances, particularly legal, to straighten them up.
From the Familia Leger to Los Adorables Ositos Nomecoma, Frugone makes fun of the pretentiousness and the most pathetic clichés that inadvertently, but persistently, flood our cultural environment. Music. TV. Soaps. Cartoons. Frugone's stories are some kind of high-on-crack pop art, plagued with references to philosophical bibliographies or, untouchable popular characters like Little Strawberry Rose, that lovable girl with a strawberry as a hat who decorated my bedspread during an infancy that knew nothing of sexual, cyclopean, predator teddy bears.
Nowadays, Gabriel Frugone is entirely devoted to designating, for himself, “universal” days that honor his artistic achievements; he produces a constant stream of hilarious and demented cartoons in addition to designing graphic works for periodicals and some other cultural products in Mexico—and the universe.

There’s 130 kilos of fat, muscles, brain & raw power on the Serbian contemporary art scene, all molded together into a 175-cm tall, 44-year-old body. It’s owner is known by a countless number of different names, including Bamboo, Mexican, Groom, Big Pain in the Ass, but most of all he’s known as MICROBE!… Hero of the losers, fighter for the rights of the dispossessed, folk artist, entertainer…
Acts, Misdemeanors and the Thoughts of the Persian King Medimon Acts, Misdemeanors and the Thoughts of the Persian King Medimon
There is nothing that has not already been done in culture, squeezed or pulled inside out, blown to dust. Classical culture today is made by scum. Those working in the fine arts who make paintings are called artists. Otherwise in the backwaters and marshlands the rest of the artists are lost in search of new and ever surprising methods. They must be earthbound, casual, political, managerial,…

The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s
The editors of Umělec have decided to come up with a list of ten artists who, in our opinion, were of crucial importance for the Czech art scene in the 1990s. After long debate and the setting of criteria, we arrived at a list of names we consider significant for the local context, for the presentation of Czech art outside the country and especially for the future of art. Our criteria did not…

S.d.Ch, Solitaires and Periphery Culture (a generation born around 1970)
Josef Jindrák
Who is S.d.Ch? A person of many interests, active in various fields—literature, theater—known for his comics and collages in the art field. A poet and playwright foremost. A loner by nature and determination, his work doesn’t meet the current trends. He always puts forth personal enunciation, although its inner structure can get very complicated. It’s pleasant that he is a normal person and a…

Aš menininkas — Aš save myliu Vincent van Gogh in one letter to his brother described a café as a place where one could easily go insane. The café in the Center for Contemporary Art (CAC) in Vilnius is such a place. Insider connoisseurs of the local scene consider it “very bohemian” and, indeed, in contrast to traditionally lackluster and overpriced eateries in museums, the atmosphere in the CAC…
