Hedvik Jenning and Slobodan Zivic recently completed The Protector Series, curated by Jonas Kleerup. This collaboration takes the strength of both participants and marries them in a way that brings out the best in both. Zivic, the Swedish graphic designer once half of design duo Dizel&Sate, has long collaborated with others but these pieces seem to have a bit of a different tone. These images are considerably less influenced by Zivic’s usual street art and Bauhaus japanime and more defined by Rushka-esqe shapes. The Protector series captures a depth in subjects he described as “Observant, cooperative, informative and attentive. They are greatly concerned with the security of others and they often find assisting the downtrodden or people with disabilities to be satisfying. Protectors are comfortable working alone and they are often uncomfortable being in positions of authority. They often dislike situations where the rules are constantly changing. More images after the jump. — Kelsey Kreiling
