Aaron Souza - the Little Nightmares

IMG_3220.JPG

 Aaron’s artwork is an exercise in personal  perspective. Through his technique of  whimsical illustration and Rorschach-esque ink blots, his pieces give the viewer a glimpse of a “monster” that is then left up to the imagination of the individual.

His process involves the splattering of ink with various tools (condensed air cans, toothbrushes, sponges etc) and then subtling completing the suggestion of a creature through much more controlled methods of illustration with fine line markers. Once the linework is complete, the pieces are mounted onto poster board with wheat paste. 

Though Aaron typically works in black and white, occasionally his pieces blossom with pools of color to further suggest a creature or ambiance.

Ultimately this gallery is about the viewer’s interpretation and should be approached with willing curiosity
