'The Bat Night-Table Lamp' Watercolour by Genia Chef
This highly imaginative piece of a character playfully named 'The Bat Night-Table Lamp', is a brilliant showcase of Chef's eccentric mind and outstanding skill. With whimsical annotations in a sketchbook style, this 1995 piece recalls the contemporary figurative style of some of his most famous paintings such as 'Sakastiker, Busophon und Wanstophon' (1990). This piece would look fantastic on its own or paired with its counterpart, 'The Computer Freak' (1993). [https://moderndecorative.com/collections/all-artworks/products/character-watercolour-1]
