    I love these! I like how the paint seems slapped on there with messy, imperfect lines/brushstrokes, but Shkipin’s figures are still detailed, discernible and compelling. It’s like Shkipin’s sculpted a melting mass of colour into scenes of a very ominous world.

      All of these are digital actually!

  • Renato Robles

    They remind me of Francis Bacon and Basquiat mixed together.

  • Huge inspiration, the brushwork is so great. Hard to believe its digital.
