Mr Everything travels through the miraculous landscapes and chambers of the dream world, in which normal perception is upside down, because it is not always clear what is above and what is below, what is on the surface and what is in the depths. While looking at colourful images, readers can create their own story in the infinite freedom of imagination. The artist feeds on surreal painting and combines different traditions of illustration, thus producing a hypnotic effect.
