dust independent artist/ designer
His work combines elements of neosurrealism, surrealism, and abstract painting. With acrylic, acrylic lacquer, and ink, his work focuses mainly on the mediums of canvas, murals, and designer toys. On his canvases and murals, dust creates fantastic worlds that immediately catapult the viewer into other dimensions. The worlds he draws are ever-changing, and show dynamic and turbulent scenes from which something new is always emerging. His scenes are full of wild, marbled games of color, exceptionally woven textures, and structures that purvey explosions of organic life and underwater worlds. In addition, the viewer will find worlds full of struggling mythical creatures called “Körperwesen,” whose tentacles circle his world in an amoeba-like fashion. In between, one will also discover his robust “Wabenmenschen,” who guard and observe the scenery around them.
As noted, dust also produces custom designer toys, each of which is a handcrafted piece, available at a premium in extremely limited editions. Each unique piece is hand-sculpted and painted, making each one in a series exclusive in its own right. His first official designer toy collection, titled “Radical Action Suits” (R.A.S.), were presented in 2006 and became the prelude to newer thematic character editions that he is still producing today.
