There's talent here, but they don't really do anything for me. In these two examples there I perceive such aggression to the point that I am completely put off by them. I also agree with the comment about the disorganization of the website portfolio; it's really frustrating to not know what you are looking at.

Very interesting and a different twist on painting the human form.

The man definitely has skill in his craft, but the cheesy melodrama and faux-rebellion counter-culture of his work is unfortunately an all-too-common theme I see in a lot of modern art. Oooo, tattoos! Graffiti! The middle finger! This guy is SO against the status quo! I really love image 37 in the "Highlights" section; the most stylishly-dressed street fight ever. Hardcore. It's a real shame to see naturally talented people create such vapid work.
