(Mark Ryden)

Mark Ryden has been one of my favourite artists for many years now. Again ,as with previous influences, I am fond of his melancholy style, and depiction of weeping girls, small innocent looking characters and sad stories. I love the way, at first glance or from a far his pictures look 'cute' and perhaps like something you may see in a childrens story book, but on closer inspection you find children are actually weeping blood , bunnies are cutting girls open to remove their organs and the world you are peeing into is only sugar coated as on the inside it is rather dark and disturbing indeed.
