Ren and Stimpy was one of my favourite shows as a kid so when iam8bit invited me to take part in the Nickelodeon ‘It’s the shizNICK!’ art show, there was only really one thing on my mind. It’s an homage to a particular Ren & Stimpy episode called ‘Svën Höek’. Ren’s cousin Svën comes to stay and Ren is excited about hosting an educated, cultured Höek family member to give him some reprieve from the imbecilic Stimpy. To Ren’s dejection, cousin Svën is on an intellectual par with Stimpy and the pair of simpletons soon become good friends. This print is inspired by the scene when Ren returns home to find his house and his treasured belongings trashed by the new companions. Fury ensues!
It’s a 2 colour screen print on black stock. Edition of 50. The show opens 19 April, from 7PM at iam8bit gallery at 2147 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026. Check it out if you’re in LA area!
