Danny Rumbl 'Koolmees'. Rotterdam, 2015
In his work we find his sources of inspiration. "I let myself be inspired by well-known (fast)food characters. They are often so well put together that they are almost timeless and even in this time very popular. "
With clean lines, sharp contours, a bright contrast of colors and recognizable elements Rumbl knows how to create a catchy image.

Each time, Rumbl places his figures in a new context. With their strong character they tell their own story. By putting the (animal) figures together with other objects, as can be seen at 'Koolmees' and ' Der Cellist ", the narrative element in the work strengthens.
Danny Rumbl 'Der Cellist'. Vienna, 2017.
The work of Rumbl has an open and playful character. This makes the work accessible to the general public. His characters are recognizable but also mysterious. They can induce a nostalgic feeling without being directly identifiable in our memory.
The artist refers to a visual language of the commercial industry and popular culture. This Visual language and the corresponding figures are in our memories, but sometimes need some clarification. By giving the work an appropriate title (such as Krush Kitty of Slush Puppie) the spectator recognises the direct link.

With his sculptures, Rumbl searches the border between figurative and abstract. He loves the challenge and limitations of working in 3D.
