I am a little bit obsessed with Mark Ryden as I think his work is beyond amazing. Being a big fan of low brow and pop surrealist art I see his work as the highest standard in this genre.
He has the style of an old master but combines it with modern pop culture creating a juxtaposition of new and old. His quirky slightly morbid characters are delightful to gaze upon in their timeless world. Mark Ryden is indeed an awesome source of inspiration to me.
