Hell’O collective, which emerged in the late 1990s, is a result of the meeting between Jerôme Meynen and Antoine Detaille.
Through their creative approach, characterized by its extreme conventional freedom, as well as its rigorous execution, Hell’O produces a fertile, imaginary fantasy world, sometimes grotesque yet always poetic. A kind of strange fantastic bestiary, populated with enigmatic animals and vaguely human-looking, asexual creatures, with shapes and symbols drawn from the iconography of fairy tales, fables, and other medieval allegories, ancient and contemporary mythologies, but also vanities, esotericism and surrealism.
Using brief narrative sequences, which are sometimes juxtaposed, and a healthy dose of humor and mockery, they rail against human foibles in compositions that combine metaphysical reflection and pure non-sense, showcasing mystery and the free interpretation of the viewer.
