I was randomly surfing the web and I came across his work. Has anyone heard of him? I like how simple and neat yet complex and strange his paintings are. I mean his paintings are very realistic and clear cut (its not impressionism with the sloppy paint strokes – not that there’s anything wrong with that style – I like Monet :)), yet the meanings behind them are cryptic and full of stories. They convey a feeling of curiosity and wonderment. When I see the paintings, it feels like I’ve just intruded into the middle of a story. Something’s going on, and I only get a glimpse of the tale.

I also get a Salvador Dali vibe from some of his work.
