The Big 5
Nick’s Top Inspirations
Robert Beatty is a major inspiration due to his use of digital media to create organic shapes and forms, I also appreciate the aesthetic of his work for the airbrush qualities that are consistent throughout.
Toshio Saeki uses strong line work and vibrant colours to create beautiful images despite his hyper erotic nightmare themes, this stands out to me as a form of juxtaposing something beautiful and something taboo.
Stanley Kubrick is a huge inspiration to many people, personally what inspires me is the use of strange subject matter to tell an ambigious story whilst creating timeless pieces of film.
