Death’s Cocktail Party£30.00
(Former British Prime Minister) Harold Mcmillan once remarked that ‘memorial services are the cocktail parties of the geriatric set’. Nishant Choksi with his first release through Nobrow Press, Death’s Cocktail Party, however, has imaginatively put the two together.
Taking the form of a series of slapstick vignettes, Death’s Cocktail Party imagines how the Grim Reaper would host his own high brow soiree, topping up guests drinks with dynamite and substituting polite small-talk for cannibal friendly canapés.
A positively dark tale, bound to amuse more than intimidate, Choksi concocts his ever more ridiculous and wild scenarios using brushes, ink and just 2 spot colours. Printed on Rives printmakers paper and available in a limited run of 100 copies Choksi promises to ‘take us to the darkest of all party venues for one last drink’.
