METAMORPHICA & the Danse Macabre -
hand drawn digital art by Paul Kingsley Squire .

Intrigued by themes of metamorphosis and transformation, Paul has created a diverse portfolio through painting, digital art and music composition.

This website contains the collection  "Metamorphica, & The Danse Macabre" created with a DIGITAL PEN & TABLET... 

The subjects, are human bodies with animal heads as in totemic-power animal hybrid affirmations, or new symbolic references to a world gone mad, and in very much need of rethinking its cultural archetypes.

With theatrical cone light as background, the subjects are even more enhanced, as ‘on the spot’. They appear either as heroic or decadent, as a criticism to the establishment or poised to save humanity. It’s up the the viewer to make a personal conclusion.

DIGITAL PEN & TABLET

METAMORPHICA & The Danse Macabre
is an ongoing project from London based artist, Paul Kingsley Squire.

Drawing inspiration from mythology, symbolism, pop culture and contemporary fashion, these animal headed hybrids and dead beat fashionistas mix humans with paganistic totemism and skeletal decadence, resulting in a highly stylised ultra modern icon.

Using a digital pen & tablet, a framework is digitally drawn in exquisite detail and then meticulously coloured, to create the finished artwork.  

The completed works are each available as acrylic (perspex) prints for a state of the art contemporary look,  or archival Giclée (fine art paper) prints which can be traditionally framed.
Some examples of work in progress...
