Chicago based artist, Louis De Guzman is teaming up with Looney Tunes to help celebrate the 80th anniversary of Bugs Bunny in the second & final colourway of A Wild Hare.
The ‘A Wild Hare II’ vinyl figure captures Bugs in De Guzman’s signature colour palette & composition style.
“A Wild Hare” is a conceptual case study celebrating 80 iconic years of Bugs Bunny. This work represents an elevated and colliding approach within my personal body of compositional work and color palette rooted from my ongoing “In Between The Lines” narrative. Pushing what form and function can communicate through physical form, the basis for this project was to approach iconography and encapsulate a familiar face + movement with modern day techniques. As if we were pulling subject matter out of a photograph from a time capsule and replenishing it with a new look and feel to it. Being able to dig into the Warner Bro’s archives and study Bugs Bunny’s evolution through the decades has been a humbling experience. And to be able to be a part of his legacy is an honor.Louis De Guzman, June 2021
