Art doesn’t need to be created with hi-fi things. Some awesome artists create amazing pieces of art with nothing but simple things and ideas. Joe Fenton is one such amazing artist who is more than successful.

The London-based artist, sculptor, and designer has worked as a concept designer for such films as The Brothers Grimm and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and he’s illustrated two children’s books. His work can be found in galleries and private collections all over the world.

His intricate, interlocking monochrome drawings are created using graphite, ink, and acrylic paint. Their sci-fi, psychedelic imagery is influenced by surrealism, Eastern design, and the flowery European Rococo style. Take a look.

With symmetrical forms and classical details alongside alien creatures with bulging eyes, Fenton’s work seems at once ancient and modern. His surreal creatures and scenes suggest an otherworldly setting. Further complicating the images is the mixture of mysticism and humor; his work often includes religious or esoteric images, but their exaggerated faces and bulging eyes make them funny and irreverent.

Aside from being impressive in their detail and complexity, some of Fenton’s work is also produced on a larger scale. That’s no small feat given the intricate nature of the drawings. One of his most famous pieces, Solitude, is eight feet long and over five feet high.

With this kind of attention to detail, you might think Fenton’s art pieces are few and far between, but he’s actually quite prolific. You can find more of his work, including his sculpture pieces, on his website.
