About the Collaboration

This fantastic mixed-media artwork is the first in the new Trilogy of “Gustav Klimt-Inspired by Disney Characters” created by Pop Artist Meb Dessin in collaboration with Disney Artist Tony Fernandez.

This collaborative artwork is inspired by “The Tree of Life”, famous mural by the Austrian painter Gustav Klimt created in 1905. This luxurious piece of art depicts the standing female figure, a detail of the extraordinary original artwork cretaed by Gustav Klimt.

How it all started?

Corner4art artists Meb Dessin and Tony Fernandez started their collaboration in 2018 when they created three mixed media artworks inspired by Bansky: “Donald & Mickey inspired by Kissing Coopers”, “Minnie inspired by Flower Thrower” and “Minnie inspired by Girl With Balloon”.

This Trilogy of “Banksy-Inspired Disney Characters” could be considered as a precursor to this new Klimt project.

Both of them let us know their love by Gustav Klimt and we propose them to joint eac other to start with this project based on a trilogy.

“The idea of doing this work comes from a proposal made by Tony and Sergio. Their vision was to re-create Tony’s version of Klimt’s Tree of Life through the use of different materials and with little or not paint. And everything in a large format. What a great challenge!!!!

-Meb Dessin

Technical Description

This masterpiece depicting Daisy Duck as the standing female figure in the Gustav Klimt’s “Tree of Life” (1905), was created by virtuosic Disney artist Tony Fernandez last year with acrylics on paper in a 50 x 40 cm size.

By combining her creative techniques, MebDessin succeeds in harmonizing a wide array of materials such as gold leaf, silk, precious stones, or chalk painting.

The result of this combination is a masterpiece with unbeatable textures and colors on a large-size wooden panel of 120 x 105 cm. never ever done before with two of our artists.

This special museum style frame was careful selected and adapted to the artwork dimensions.

The painstaking hand made process of framing includes a 100% wooden mate on the front and back.

The result of this process is an elegant and impressive piece of art suitable for the most demanding collectors.

“When I proposed this collaboration to MEB Dessin, I was not aware of the exciting journey that awaited us. I hope that many people will enjoy this adventure at least as much as I did.”
