Mr Durian

After moving to Vietnam I encountered many very different, tropical food delicacies. This unfortunate character is made out of the smelliest.

Mr Durian

This is a very early example of one of my Vietnam inspired woodcuts. It's an unlucky character made up from all of the smelliest street foods I could find. The whole head is a Durian fruit, labelled the king of fruits here a cart selling them can be smelt from down the street. For his nose I used a dried shrimp skin and also smell fish paste in the eyes.
