Pastel: Artist at Work (2006)

artistatwork

Mixed technique on paper, 57×39 cm. I made this on croquis live modelling lessons at Västra Nylands Folkhögskola art school. Everything seen in the work was for real in the class room but interpreted here through “cubistic” and surreal eyes. For example the “cave drawings” were steel wire figures.

Character: Avalkis

Avalkis is an animal with the features of a deer and a dragon from my Springbringer fantasy world. The first sketch was drawn in a forest. I often find animals, creatures and beings in tree branches, stumps, leaves, clouds, puddles of waterin the fractals of nature and other random visual formations.

The colored one is is a pastel drawing. This is kind of a self-portrait in a way and my alias is Avalkis which I’m using as an artist name in certain publications such as music.

Drawing: Bull Fractal (2008)

bullfractal

A psychedelic bull constructed out of fire, The Sprite of Spring and a feminine duck meet in a whirlpool of fractal. Can you see the Duck and the Bull? There is also a grand piano (“flyygeli” in Finnish) keyboard-headed slug with a moustache.

Pen 70×50 cm. I find animals, creatures, beings and characters in clouds, puddles, tree branches, leaves, stumps… in the fractals of nature and other random visual formations. Although in this case this is purely my imagination and subconsciousness on a blank piece of paper basically without any outer stimulation.
