AJ is a freelance artist who’s art is largely inspired and informed by surrealism, as well as psychedelic poster and album art of the ’60s and ’70s. We were sent his work as an artist submission and were immediately drawn to his collages and illustrations as they seemed to speak of a raw study of religion, sex, culture and sea creatures.
I am equally interested in prehistoric cave paintings and religious artwork and architecture of all cultures. For the last few years my compositions have largely been developed through the process of collage and then executed as drawings or paintings. The collage technique allows for chance to play a large role in my creative process, as I am able to stumble upon serendipitous hidden relationships between the subjects and objects I use to populate my compositions.
