Nature Boy: Jesper Ryom and Wilfried Sätty


Interest in the work of collage artist Wilfried Sätty (1939–1982) increases by slow degrees, and did so again last year although I completely missed the occasion. Better late than never. Nature Boy is a 12-inch single by Jesper Ryom on the Berlin-based Power Plant label which comes adorned with this Sätty collage of a tattooed boy. The picture appears as a vignette in the posthumous Visions of Frisco (2008) but this is the first time I’ve seen the larger work. Power Plant promoted the single by staging an exhibition of Sätty prints, photos of which can still be viewed hereNature Boy can be heard in full at YouTube.

One thought on “Nature Boy: Jesper Ryom and Wilfried Sätty”

  1. Visions of Frisco is a really wonderful book, not only for the Satty collages but also for the archival texts compiled by Walter Medeiros to complement and complete Satty’s long-cherished project on San Franscisco in the Gold Rush era.
