The content of my art is usually fiction, that sometimes tells a story and other times just an idea. My artwork explores the vast spaces of imagination.
Science Fiction is my favorite genre of fiction. I specialise in creating concept art & illustrations for various projects such as games, animations, movies, comics or even other random ideas floating about in my head .
Fiction is a way of abstraction commonly used by artists, writers and other visionaries as it reveals, very subtly, what journeying into a person’s mind might be like. I like to paint fiction because it gets the cog wheels running as I board a whole new train of thought. It has the ability to take you away from the troubles of the real world as you get immersed in it .
The artists of Star trek came up with the visual look/idea/design of “ the communicator” , that sparked the creation of cell phones. Leonardo da vinci came up with “ the flying machine “ and look at how these things have changed our lives ! Art has the ability to spark ideas that can spiral out. My intention is to create as much art that does exactly that, throughout my life.
I have explored both Traditional and Digital media . My weapon of choice remains digital media
where i tend to use both 2D and 3D techniques to create digital art and animations.
My artwork can be shaped as posters or framed prints ( signed , limited editions , exclusives & merchandise prints) as well as traditional media commissions ( canvases & framed paintings , original sketches and drawings). It also includes non-tangible finished digital artwork files related to 2D or 3D art & animation videos !
