Eremos

Hey everyone, been a while since I posted, I want to let you know I’m on twitter and tumblr now!

Here are the first images from a new series of works titled “Eremos”

“Eremos” envisions the mythological archetypes of tribal cultures living ages after the fall of civilization.  These Mask designs are early explorations into gods, spirits and motifs for this world.

I’ll be continuing to work on these masks along with more narrative images based on classical mythological archetypes and will post more as they come. Thanks for looking!

    Hi Nigel,
    this is a really interesting piece of work! It reminded me of the sculptures of Dino and Jake Chapman at the Tate Britain in London.
    These artists reinvented primitive, ethnographic art with an ironic quirk, and the result is disturbingly funny.
