Published by Ediciones Polar. Edited by Sigismond de Vajay.
The watercolors and drawings of French artist Sigismond de Vajay (born 1972) address globalization and power structures with what critic Pedro Donoso describes as “a healthy sarcasm that goes beyond the pessimistic campaign of fear orchestrated by the media. These Nouveaux Desastres show the symphonic beauty of the destruction of all things, without forgetting the unavoidable environmental impact caused by men and their big toys.”
