    Artist Nana Dalla Porta illustrates a wonderfully realistic version of the famed Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck in this artwork. While we are accustomed to seeing both characters as cartoons, artist Porta shows us how they would look if they were to be alive in reality. Mickey is far from his rich black fur and large years, while Donald doesn’t have the same set of enlarged eyes. This artwork goes to show the immense effort put into creating a fantasy world by cartoonists and how they are capable of making two ordinary animals into lovable characters. Purchase this artwork to add a unique perspective of cartoons onto your wall.

    Artwork Title: Donald And Mickey
    Artist: Nanà Dalla Porta
    Technique: Drawing & Illustration
    SKU: TYP004

    The work of Milanese artist Nanà Dalla Porta is very much like that of nineteenth-century Franco-Montevidean poet Isidore Ducasse, the self-styled Comte de Lautréamont: whimsical, dark, stylized, slightly unsettling but slightly more wilfully absurd. And, of course, populated by octopods. At the heart of Lautréamont's bestiary is the magnificent mollusc, 'the most beautiful of nature's beasts', with its 'quicksilver form', its 'eight monstrous limbs, each long enough to hug the earth entire', and its 'seraglio of four-hundred suckers'. Artist Nanà too was incurably smitten with the species in his youth, when he wrestled the tenacious critters bare-handed off the Sicilian coast.

    Indeed, this is how he earned the nickname 'Oktopus'. But there's even more to the comparison. Like Lautréamont again, Nanà is the archetypal precocious pupil. Bored with his staid schoolmasters, he sketches their distorted caricatures in his lesson book. Shall they be vampires today? Grinning skulls? Or marauding Wookies? Such exercises in insouciance have yielded a fantastic portfolio of illustrations for prints, posters, t-shirts, comics, graphic novels and rock-and-roll album sleeves. Across various media and genres, Nanà's hand is recognizable by its intelligence, its dexterity and above all its formidable sense of humor.
