His portrayal of the mundanities of day to day life speak volumes to me personally and I believe something new can be gathered from each one of his wonderful works each time you view it. In Kimbaross’s own words…
“I mainly use oils for painting as I love the feel and smell of the stuff and as a result, I probably have long term heavy metal poisoning. I also use a lot of oil pastels for drawings as I love the semi control I have over the finished work and because I feel like a big kid using them. I have been experimenting with pencil and ink l…
