I see dead people. Must have had a nice childhood. I can't wait for his band "Kill" to tour the States...I'm just dying to go!

These works show huge attention to detail. The little intricate piecing of the cut outs, along with a keen eye for color make a bold statement. I wish he had chosen something other than skulls to portray his message.

I look forward to the day when our obsession with death, depicted by skulls, are over. Such a talented hand yet bound by popular subject matter. Come on!

This is work is crisp, vividly colorful, and has an erie quality to it. The fragmentation of the images creates a synergistic feeling. Thanks, Susan

That must have taken a lot of time. I love the first "painting" especially.

Very interesting and unusual work.

I HAVE BEEN AN ARTIST FOR 52 YEARS. I REALLY LIKE THIS ARTISTS WORK. IT'S NICE TO SEE ART FROM DIFFERENT ARTIST'S FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

It's very beautiful and thought out. The toning used really sets the mood.

I'm not sure which is more evocative- the fact that the skull-faced women are portrayed throughout, or the faceted shapes around them. Great paintings, though.

It's not to my taste at all, but I appreciate the technique, skill and sensitivity to color and shape that's displayed here.
