I found some blatant ripoffs of Horkey, Vania, and Holt. They better get on this guy to stop. Except his name is Martin Schongauer and he died in 1491.

the problem with him is that, while obviously talented, he's yet to develop any real style of his own - you never look at any of his work and go, 'oh that's a ghrist' - it's always something along the lines of 'the waves are holt-ish and the sky is horkey-esque' et al. looking at the new piece it's clearly very technically proficient but lacks any real originality as he's just managed to suture together two different artists' styles into one piece but without creating something definitively 'his' in the process. he's also not that young - i think he's 26-27 or thereabouts - so you can't just chalk it up to him being a kid that is emulating his heroes and doesn't know any better.
F.O.?

I am slowly warming myself to ghrist here... while earlier work was very horkey, some pieces more so than others, this seahorse piece seems to be ushering him into his own. While personally I find it a bit hard on the eyes, it is quite a display of what he can do. Seems alot of artists lately are coming out of their shells and showing their true selves, and it is great to see.
