Tatiana Suarez Happy Happy, Joy Joy Print and Original Artwork

Tatiana Suarez's charming style is distinctive -- the trademark eyes draw the viewer into a beautiful and surreal world. Rich with symbols that stem from her Brazilian and El Salvadorian heritage, subjects appear as if they are under water, frozen in lovely stillness. For her latest 1xRUN she has returned with Happy Happy, Joy Joy an homage to one of her favorite 90s cartoons.

"This piece was inspired by Ren & Stimpy, which I loved so much growing up. The idea for this piece came about after watching some of their most recent Lost Episodes. These are much grosser, risqué and perverse versions of the show, geared towards adults rather than children. They weren't as great as the past episodes, but it still sparked inspiration for a a piece. Also, the fact that my dog is the embodiment of Ren, it's an idea that's been floating around for while now. The original painting itself is no longer available, it sold very recently during Art Basel a few weeks ago. This was the first piece in a long time that I started for myself, not for any shows. It was meant to be a fun, experimental piece, full of more expressive brush marks and a complex composition." - Tatiana Suarez
