Elzo Durt Elzo Durt (from Belgium) is not a musician but his work flow it’s like a dj, he is a genius to mixed pop art, surrealism, digitalism, comics style, and psychedelic art of 60s and 70s. His art is “computer pasting” so he spend a lot of time costantly has to renew his picture database, find new images in old book, magazine, medical studies, botanical illustrator, etc. He scan them, paste them togheter, create a coherent composition, after he add color, detail after detail.

Throught his characters and their grotesque surrounding, he examines the relationship between life and death. www.elzo.be
