"Esao's work was one of the first original pieces of art my wife and I added to our collection over a decade ago (back when you could still buy small originals from Esao directly off his website, ah the good ol' days haha). I've watched Esao become one of the leading voices in the pop surrealism genre over the past decade and relish in the fact that he has only just begun to tap into his creative reservoir. I find myself continually excited by the notion of all that is to come from this amazing young talent. I trust we will be inspired and amazed by Esao's work for many decades to come. His is an imagination that only grows stronger with each passing day and new discovery."

"Raphael was so excited and picked the charcoal as painting brush, but where was the paper.One of the best stuff that you might use is wine and food metal art. Although there are a variety of different views on this portrait, it can not be caused by any particular school of painting style. Details"
