Disspain’s renderings of the seemingly everyday urban places are more than they first appear to be as each canvas depicts the scene of a horrific event such as a murder or violent crime. Initially, Disspain’s works appear to be sweet, colourful scenes of suburban homes and landscapes. Once engaged with the paintings, one can sense that something more sinister is at play within the compositions.
