Description This illustration was inspired by the avant garde Soviet constructionist style of children's books from the 1920's and 1930's. Although this illustration was intended to be a little more playful and optimistic! I remember loving woodblock prints in children's fairy tales more than the stories themselves the chaos, the subtle hidden elements, the mystery and action. How every time I would look at them I would find something new.
Bill O'Neil, Milwaukee Member Since October 2006 Artist Statement My artwork inspirations include a few odd conspirators like the chaotic influences of cryptography, prime numbers, and decay. I'm also influenced by Eames-era artifacts, retro-modern abstract art, architecture, and advertising. And all these inspirations manifest themselves in the different pieces I produce.
I really never approach my art very logically. It’s all fairly impulsive and obsessive. I just try to understand what it means when it’s complete. I like to think of my style as a super-nautural fusion of urban graffiti, mid-century modern abstracts, advertising design, and some kind of otherworldly information maps.
