great talent and execution...but I never got the whole grotesque subject matter thing.. I guess its just for shock value?
Anyway, I just hope that at least few people get something out of it. Sure I had a "deep" meaning to them, but as soon as I open my mouth to explain, I feel like I'm oversimplifying the idea, so yeah, its the old story where everyone interprets their own thing.
And I'd definitely wouldn't want to call them "shocking". Almost every hollywood action movie is 1000 times more violent/shocking. If you ask me, I'd rather call them psychological
PS. I'm happy only with 2 of them, all the others I think miss my intention. But I guess that comes with the package of trying to draw something
Thanks for the comments guys.
wow. it was a worthy two years off. I know a bunch of folks in this industry who deserve that opportunity. Powerful stuff.
very powerful images! post more.
I have to say that it certainly caught me off guard. It's shocking, yes, but at the same time I find it enchanting. I've had disturbing dreams with similar content, but my skills have never been good enough to translate the emotion or atmosphere that I had in the dream, so I really appreciate the dream-like quality found in your works.
Also, the white dog with the blood dripping from it was probably the most disturbing to me, but I chalk that up to the composition, the content, and most especially the palette. It's funny how some of us are so drawn to things that disturb us. Incidentally it's probably my favorite piece out of this selection. I'll most definitely be watching you for more art work! :3
Oh, and I also have to commend you for not wanting to translate the images for us. A lot of artists would be all too eager to explain them, but I really like that you are willing to leave it a mystery. I think that's a quality of a real artist right there.

the babe with the puppies.... wow gave a really weird feeling!
To look at your work, one must go through a personal battle of what they feel comfortable with. They may feel disturbed, shocked or inspired. Whatever this case may be I think that not telling the viewer what your intentions are just adds to the personal struggle of the viewer which I think works well. Alternately, do these paintings have titles? I think that if you did want to hint at your intentions (if just to help your viewers guess your original intent) you could put some kind of subtle hint in the titles of either the individual pieces or the whole collection (if they all have the same or similar meanings). Great job and keep it up man.
great technique. but i don't know why it makes me laugh,
like some b class horror movie.
guy giving birth from his ass, come on...
Damn Ant awsome executed!
Props for beeing able to view reference photos of the ass birth. myabe you was looking in the mirror? haha
in this place one can see all kinds of cool and sick shit. This... this is amongst the sickest in here. And the most incredible. Amazing technique. I've gotte echo randis. That ass birth gotta hurt for a long time. Good luck on the exhibition
great work, really idea is nice and mirrored I think.
Some thoughts going to explode like your art.
Oh my god is that one with man giving birth to a baby supposed to be the backstory to http://www.goatse.fr/? (don't click on the link.)
Really great paintings, love your technique. Subject matter wise I think the ones that work the best are the ones that aren't gross in such a specifically weird way like the ass baby picture and the women with the dog in her snatch are. Like the ones where you leave something to the imagination like the baby in the light or the baby with the dogs.
I guess what I'm talking about is the difference between evocative and provocative. Still all great paintings technique wise.
just a single word out standing man i m fan of your style of work
