Artwork/Artist Description: As the planet got hotter and drier, more and more of the planet was turned into desert. Luckily the smaller population meant there were more resources to go around.
I’m a self-taught creative living in Melbourne’s western suburbs. I’m strongly influenced by Australian culture, science fiction, cyberpunk and vaporwave aesthetics, and dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction. While my work tends to reflect the darker elements of life I love sprinkling humour and motifs throughout. Iconic figures from Australian history and culture feature heavily in my pieces: Ned Kelly, Vegemite, and even Bubble-O Bills. All of them standing out in late-stage consumerist Hellscapes that are beautiful in their over-developed decay. Basically, I was motivated to create the Australian sci-fi dystopia I always wanted to see but I was sick of waiting for others to create it.
