EVERY MAN AND HIS DOG

Using a brush and paint typically reserved for Oriental Painting and calligraphy, South Korean artist Etoffe paints the daily banalities and quiet moments in the life of a man and his dog. The series, succinctly titled Lui et Son Chien (Him and His Dog) began in 2014 and is currently exhibiting in a solo show organised by Howlpot, a companion animal design group and retail space based in Seoul. “Lui at Son Chien debuted in Howlpot’s first exhibition Pupp-Art and was very popular with a lot of people, especially animal lovers. That felt great,” said Etoffe.

The artist has recently adopted a female retriever mix and has watched the pup grow rapidly in the three months since then. Similarly, in Lui et Son Chien, the man and his dog subtly grow together in size through the series. Etoffe’s aim for her artworks is for her audience to reflect on their own lives with their beloved animal.

ISSUE SEVEN — PRE-ORDER NOW

We are excited to announce our seventh issue is now available to pre-order.
This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
