ONYX is a self taught artist born and raised in east end of London where he still lives and works today.
Art revealed itself to him a few years ago after an accident left him in a coma for several weeks and a year in recovery.
ONYX turned to Art as a means of therapy and a way of expressing maybe what he had been through sub-consciously.
ONYX creates three dimensional artworks out of man-made artefacts. Conjuring the extraordinary from the ordinary, his work contains a complex, highly original use of symbolic figures and iconography to portray the constant battle between the dark and the light in the mind of the 21st century man.
ONYX obsessively arranges characters and architectures with a profound sense of drama to create arresting dioramas of mythic proportions.
ONYX has an obsession to create moments from our future from tiny fragments of our past, each object he uses is aimed to take you the viewer on your own personal journey as you are sucked into his alternative reality.
hemes of metamorphosis and transformation are the cycle and growth of an Onyx piece crossing boundaries between what is familiar and what is not.
A memory of the future is only possible if you have been there and an ONYX piece seeks to take you there.
