Rory Kurtz

I’m really enjoying the ultra-detailed illustrations of Rory Kurtz, a Chicago based artist. Rory works in both ink and paint, creating these kind of surreal images that have kind of an Aeon Flux/Peter Chung feel to them. The people in his work have this distorted, stretched out look to them but they still look perfect and are only made better by all the subtle line work he uses.

    awesome find, I love the artwork. I wish he had prints of some of the ink works though.

    If you like this kind of artwork or anything by Peter Chung, you should check out the fine artist from the early 1900s named Egon Schiele. Peter Chung said he was a huge inspiration. Schiele didn’t live very long unfortunately but he drew very interesting landscapes and primarily nude figures, male and female, with that trademark stretched out and lanky look.

    yeah i was actually going to say that it reminded me of something form that period, even some of Beardsley’s work
