    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.

  • Renato Robles

    They remind me of Francis Bacon and Basquiat mixed together.
