Spotlighting the narrative and mythical imagery of Marcel Dzama, this one-of-a-kind blank book holds a unique space for creative play and contemplation

“Enjoy what you are making, people can feel it in the work…I feel that art has been a good escape from the reality we are in.” – Marcel Dzama

Drawing inspiration from folklore and fairy tales and incorporating art-historical influences, Marcel Dzama’s work has secured a cult following of musicians and artists. His celestial imagery, masked characters, and aquatic scenes resonate with viewers of all ages. The vibrant and fantastical work featured on the cover and endpapers of Dzama’s first Artist Journal enchants the mind and encourages unbridled expression.

Each journal is beautifully crafted in Verona, Italy.

The work of Marcel Dzama (b. 1974, Winnipeg) is characterized by an immediately recognizable visual language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic influences, including Dada and Marcel Duchamp. While he has become known for his prolific drawings with their distinctive palette of muted colors, in recent years, the artist has expanded his practice to encompass sculpture, painting, film, and dioramas.
