“Man must retain his connection with the beast to truly be considered a man.”
The essence of my art is to evoke and provoke. I am a well travelled, self-taught artist / illustrator that finds inspiration in people, places and some beautifully dark corners of my imagination. I have an interest in things dark and phantasmic and often cross the erotic with the shadows of dark fantasy and the bizarre. I am also influenced by mythology, literature, film, pop culture, erotica and fetish culture. I would say my artistic style could be called idealized realism influenced by such artists as Eugene Grasset, Robert E. Mc Ginnis, Aubrey Beardsley, Giovanna Casotto and Milo Manara. I use mixed media such as pencil , ink ,graphite, water colour and acrylic paint, sometimes coloured markers or anything at hand that may do the job.
