Satirical Obituary by Helmut Simts

Based in Rotterdam in The Netherlands, multidisciplinary artist Helmut Simts produces intriguing work that flows from sculpture and public installation to design and film. Irrespective of the chosen medium for each piece, what consistently shines through in Smits practice is a contemporary sensibility that both embraces and critiques everyday life. McDonald’s, for example, is a recurring motif that culminates in a satirical obituary for the company’s central mascot. All of those Big Macs were going to get to him eventually.
