Part figurative, part abstract, Drux Flux is a short comprising of fast-flowing images showing modern people crushed by industry. Inspired by One-Dimensional Man, by H. Marcuse, Ushev deconstructs industrial scenes and their terrifying geometry to show the inhumanity of progress.
Born in Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Theodore Ushev first made a name for himself as a poster artist in his native country before settling in Montreal in 1999.
