Petra Korent is interested in illustrations of a wild context. Using humour, she casts a kinder light on the unpleasant and banal life situations we unavoidably face. These are the pains of contemporary human intimacy, whether relationships of duality or solo dramas, which she makes fun of in a caricaturised, humorously absurd and direct manner. Naked bodies, hairy legs, bodily fluids and small penises, all a part of an individual’s everyday, are thus placed in new fantastical and surreal settings.
Petra Korent (1997) focuses primarily on illustration, graphic design and digital art. She attends the Secondary School for Design and Photography in Ljubljana. In 2016, she participated in the ZINE VITRINE dvatwozwei competition. Her solo exhibition Šment was featured in Žmauc (2016). She published two zines Perception and Šment (both in 2016). In her work, she explores absurdity, bizarreness and humorous situations.
