Additional Information

Perhaps best known for taking over Mad magazine’s Spy vs. Spy, New York alternative cartoonist and graphic novelist Peter Kuper here appropriates a well-known image by Belgian Surrealist René Magritte.

Kuper, who has been a visiting artist at UND, produced this print in the Department of Art & Design’s printmaking facility with the assistance of students. By working alongside professional artists, UND students are provided with unique learning opportunities. The students’ collaborations with visiting artists have been enhanced through Sundog Multiples—a printmaking venture created by Art & Design Professor Kim Fink, in conjunction with UND Art Collections, and generously funded by the Myers Foundations.
