The Art of Michael Rohner
Self-taught artist Michael Rohner draws his whimsical yet realistic characters with influences from comic book art, graffiti, animation, and surrealism. His animal totem series is an exploration of the wisdom of animals. Michael layers ink, markers, and spray paint on paper to bring his colorful mediations to life. Occasionally he mixes in water color, oil pastel, acrylics, paint markers and digital photography for greater contrasting effect. Watch the video to the right to see his techniques on an illustration that took nearly 50 hours condensed into under two minutes.
