Day 19: Craig Thornton

My work primarily consists of drawings that explore a personal mythology. I express identity through figures and their relationship to landscape and elemental forms. My influences come from specific art periods as well as contemporary popular culture. My two favorite art periods are the Italian Renaissance and Surrealism. Elements of popular culture that inspire me include science fiction and fantasy illustrations, books, and movies from 1950’s until present day as well as comics from the 1970s to 1990s.
