Vice: Hello, you Norwegian artist you. I command thee to describe your drawings without using the word “amazing.” Ready? Go!

Martin Skauen:

That’s a lot! Don’t you start hating them after a while?

Your work is pretty brutal. Are people disturbed by it?

Does their reaction disgust you?

Berlin is not funny, but we think your drawings are funny.

Annons

La Resistance

Well, that’s not really the first thing that strikes us…

Heavy! How do you come up with the ideas for your drawings? Do you bathe in blood and pray to demon gods, or do you sit somberly in a dark room on a rainy day listening to Mozart’s Requiem Mass?

What would you do if you didn’t draw?

Do you like humans?
