Dirk Strangely is a naturally gifted artist whose beautiful, yet macabre work is like being sucked into a black hole that takes you away to a different dimension. His ability to see the beauty in the macabre and make order of a swirling chaos of texture and figure design shows that Dirk is inspired by a muse that sets his work apart from anything seen in today’s Pop Culture Art. His strengths lie in the way he can take both the beautiful and disturbing and thereby create a surreal beauty from it.
Dirk is a favorite guest at many gallery showings and pop culture media events. His gothic style attracts an unusual amount of attention from the attendees and critics alike.
Dirk is not just a visual artist but is a well lauded and respected writer who has been published in several magazines and is currently involved with several projects in development by several film and television companies. This has given him the chance to combine his talents that include digital art, painting, sculpture and a love of puppetry.
He is a seasoned world traveler and has taken much from the cultures and people he’s encountered. He truly understands the global village we live in. But it’s Dirk Strangely’s core philosophy of life and the world around him that gives unique insight into the man and his art.
To quote Dirk… “My Goal is to show that we are all creatures of dark and light. To deny oneself of either is a lesson in self- destruction”
