A little while back I posted a piece by an unknown artist, which regular readers will know I really don’t like doing, but I did it anyway because it was so unusual. When I posted the piece on my Instagram feed, a kind soul filled in the blanks for me and mentioned the artist in a comment. Brilliant, brilliant, I now know the artist to be Panskaribas (Pangiotis Skaribas) and feel somewhat pleased with myself for posting the first piece as he has an extraordinarily distinctive style.
There seems to be a mash-up of picasso and 1950s cartoons going on in this piece, or at least that is what I see. I love the doodled style of the character, but feel there is a lot of sophistication to it that might be missed without a proper look. Going through my archives, I have found more pieces by Panskaribas and am instantly taken with his artwork. I look forward to seeing more of this very unusual style.
