My name is Redski Redd. I am a Fine Art Photographic Artist. I am inspired to create. My inspiration comes from everyday, mundane, household objects, toys and small figures, that I transform into original and unusual Still Life artwork in my studio.
I also have a passion for photographing beautiful outdoor scenery and then turning the images into, poetic and emotive works of art.
As a published book cover artist, I photograph and composite images, transforming them them into striking, original book covers, which are totally unique, having distinctive depth, detail and creativity.
My influences stem from Film, Music and Photography. From Kubrick to Kieslowski, Daft Punk, Feinstein and Avedon, they all have had an impact on my passion and drive to create photographic artwork.
It is my vision to create works of art that come from the heart; that are striking, fun, scary... that can create deep feelings of emotion in the viewer.
It is not enough for me to document life, the creative side of me wants to show my work in the richest, most vivid, boldest way I can imagine.
Snapshots of a fantasy world, that hopefully entice and inspire the viewer.
I am also passionate about promoting other contemporary Photographers and Artists, which is why I have created 'The Artist Interviews' series and also a YouTube Portfolio Video and Tutorial channel.
