Beau White - I have been interested in illustrating absurd, grotesque and distastefully humorous images since primary school.
There is nothing particularly philosophical about my art in the conceptual sense. There are themes and narratives that are relatively simple and obvious, with the main focus being on the ridiculous.
I don't have a grand vision or statement I want to make through art, I just want to draw and paint silliness and weirdness in various forms for my own gratification and anyone else with similar inclinations.
Although I steer away from taking the subject matter in my work too seriously, I do spend a serious amount of time, consideration and mental exertion on my creative process. That's where I derive the most meaning in my art; In the doing, not the discussion that follows.
