Artist's Description

This is the face of Slavoj Žižek.

I decided to illustrate his interesting and odd portrait, since I wanted to surprise one of my friends, with a spontaneous present. He is a fun philosopher to listen to, even though sometimes, his views and conclusions are a bit extreme and I don’t agree with them.At times, his aggressive way to present ideas is called for.

I don’t usually make presents in special occasions like birthdays and Christmas, because usually I feel like, at least to some extent, the circumstance is forcing me to be nice and spontaneous. Which misses the point of an honest present altogether.

Me and my friend both liked this big Slovenian, Marxist philosopher, and often imitated his very unique tics of speaking and his extreme hand gestures.

He often brings up atrocities, genocide, racism, and involuntarily binds them with one of his verbal tics, namely “and so on, and so on”, which has the very comical effect of trivializing whatever intensely taboo thing he is talking about.
