When reality can be overwhelming sometimes, the works of the Vienna-based illustrator and artist Lony Mathis
serve as a portal into a pastel-coloured land of milk and honey, where puppies, as a symbol of friendship and loyalty, comfort us while we eat heart-shaped pizzas and play Snake on our Nokia 3310. It's all about love and positivity here, focusing on what unites us rather than what sets us apart. The vibrant works of the artist are an explosion of shared memories for 90s kids and have one clear goal: to make us feel good and safe. In conversation with Mathis, we talk about her own childhood memories, why she prefers the tablet over pen and paper and what she would draw if she had to draw the same thing for the rest of her life.
