Born in Los Angeles in the 70's, Rask Opticon found himself drawn to the graffiti that graced the streets of his hometown. His early influences ranged from street art and video games to cartoons. This led to an interest in Anime in his teens - a medium where storytelling and vivid imagery combined.
He now takes on a vast array of different mediums - canvas painting with airbrush and paint brushes, digital painting with a graphic tablet, sculpting, spray paint and the list goes on!
His is style of art is described as dark, vivid, cybernetic/electronic, fantasy and sometimes cute or like someone once said," it's like a distortion of life." It's like art with a Bi-Polar disorder with no remedy in sight.
