  • Cathal O’Blivion

    Amazing work – reminds me of Bacon and Goya

  • rob

    these things hurt me!

  • so gorgeous…

  • anny

    i always come back to this artist, he’s really inspired me. it’s definitely one of my favorites.

  • His work remind me a bit of Francis Bacon. Very interesting use of colors!

  • The person with the coat is GREAT!

  • I absolutely love the darkness to these. In terms of painting approach they are super nice in terms of looseness of application of paint and control of colour. Imagery is a perfect balance (for me) between representational and abstract – bang on!
