      • barney

        I saw some new stuff of his in an exhibition in london in the lazarides gallery in soho (brilliant stuff)the curator said he was taking a new exhibition to the US this year. The stuff you posted is all from the lazarides outsiders book (good book!) x

  • Emily

    i’m in love

  • stuart

    JUST LIKE CHLOE EARLY

  • Chris

    Chloe Early came to mind for me too. But I think I like these better. More… metaphysical.

    • Stuart

      I think Chloe’s a little more accessible, and a little less dark.
      This is almost too surrealistic for my taste.

  • Was his work in Juxtapoz a while back?

  • lieze

    I love this! Makes me think of Francis Bacon’s work. Pretty awsome. His work does look alot like some work I saw in Juxtapoz a couple of months ago. hmmm…

  • Jake

    The sense of space in these!

  • stella

    Hiii love ur work….very pretty
