Van Gogh or the Dawn of It All is a darkly humorous dystopia. It is a parody, simultaneously, of the artistic world and the place of the artist in the world, when the creation no longer embraces the soul and the focal point becomes only for profit.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Petr Merka (1979) is a Czech writer who first released a collection of short stories Telekristus and Mental in 2007; followed by a fairy-tale-like attuned novel Fantasmagoria TV; a collection of short stories Hitler is smiling at you, published in Poland; a graphic novel Van Gogh of the 21st Century, published in Germany; and a collection of bizarre fairy-tale stories Vila Dita. A graphic novel Puberty and Emotions is currently being finalized for release.
Petr's creative work is distinctive in a high dose of nonconformity, socially critical subtext, absurdity, and a slightly mystical overtone. Petr belongs to controversial authors who are breaking all literal taboos.
David Marcin (1991) is a Slovak comic book artist and illustrator. In 2017, he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava.
David published several short comic stories and illustrations in Slovakia, Czech Republic, and Japan. In collaboration with Petr Merka, he also illustrated the graphic novel Van Gogh of the 21st Century, published in Slovakia, Czech Republic, and Germany. Further, David has collaborated with publishers and clients such as SME, ZumZum Production, Standart Mag, BrAK, and others.
David is co-creator of an alternative comic book almanac entitled POMIMO. He currently live and works in Bratislava.
