Feist your eyes on another gallery of works by Canadian artist, Robin Kavanagh as explained in his words. Following him on Instagram is quite a treat, as he posts at least 2-5 pieces of his unique art a day.
Addiction – digital illustration (iPad)
Never considering the implications of trying to be cool I started smoking and am still
looking down from that deadly tower of addiction only now that I’ve considered it
time to get down it’s too late. The fall would be fatal, or worse.
Blind – digital illustration (iPad)
I grew up Roman Catholic never quite believing in god. Logic got in the way and by
the time I was a teenager any notion of a god was something I rejected completely.
Not needing to see something in order to know it exists is contrary, unsatisfying and
yet strangely alluring.
Candle – digital illustration (iPad)
Death is a lit candle running out the wax of our lives. The ornate things that support
and surround us are not us but they are still here when we no longer are. Perhaps
those things we hoard are the evidence of us.
Conception – digital illustration (iPad)
The idea of existing at all has always interested me and not until the birth of my son
did it ever become as clearly defined. I remember when his smiling face was not yet
here but in my head I cannot imagine him never not being here.
Self – pencil sketch
Drawing on unusual surfaces with unusual materials is a good way of keeping
creativity feeling like you’re a child just having fun. This sketch includes smearing
lip balm on the surface and dusting over top with a thin layer of Johnson’s Baby
Powder. If it’s not in some way fun, why do anything at all? Why?
