|I am a self-taught artist working in adobe photoshop, as well as traditional mediums such as acrylics, pen and ink, and other mixed techniques. My art covers a variety of styles, most bordering on the surreal. My work always contains a certain amount of abstractiveness, and the focus is usually on one central figure. Never having learned the boundries of genres in art has allowed me to create very unique imagery.
My artistic influences are drawn mainly from the surrealists of the past and present, and modern-day, surreal-style, comicbook, as well as fine-art artists. They include; Dave Mckean, James Jean, Kent Williams, John J. Muth, Francis Bacon, Ash Wood, Bill Sienkowitz, Salvador Dali, Heironymous Bosch, Gustave Klimt, Egon Shiele, Greg Spalenka, Chris Shy, Yoshitako Amano, Phil Hale, Alesandro Bavari, KSS, Charles Delgollado III, ...
