Kevin Pickles Biography:
I would consider my strong point to be black & white art in the sci-fi/fantastical pop-cultural genres – a bi-product of spending so many years working on comic books – but, as you will see from my site-galleries, I work in a lot of different media. I select materials to suit the work at hand, sometimes using multiple materials on one piece – in fact this is my preferred method of working. As well as the traditional acrylics, inks and pastels I use spray-can, diluted bleach and photo collage. If it is required I will use a toothbrush to paint or the broken end of a stick dipped in ink to draw.
I’m influenced by the comic-art of Simon Bisley, Bill Sienkiwizc, Jae Lee and the underground comics of the 1970’s. From fine art circles I take influences from people like Francis Bacon and Giacometti, and I’m a huge fan of graffiti art.
So here it is – my work. Please feel free to drop me a line via the various forms of communication featured in the Contact-section, as sales and commissions are always welcome !
