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.
And Horkey and Holt were the first of their kind?? You talk like Aaron Horkey invented that style of art when bashing Andrew. :roll: This is no different than people trashing Jordan Monsell for paper cuts because apparently Olly Moss invented paper cuts and only he can do it. Or people trashing Josh Budich being a weak copy cat of Tyler Stout because they have similar "floating heads" approach. Or even Traci Ching tracing or even trying to minic Laurent Durieux. Or Banksy stealing images or Dface being a Roy Lichtenstein rip off. or MBW ripping off everyone.
every modern artist has antecedents - horkey has clearly been influenced by durer, moebius, wrightson and pushead - but nobody would ever/has ever confused his work for theirs. that's not the case with ghrist as his fandom manifests itself as outright plagiarism (the clouds, the lettering are you kidding me?) so i'm not willing to cut him any slack in this regard. it's clear you are up on this kid's jock and again, he's not without talent, he just needs to find his own voice before i'm going to give him much in the way of credit.

I haven't really gone for many of them but they seem to be pretty laid back. I wouldn't imagine this will sell out in seconds. If you are there when it drops, I would guess you are safe.

PangeaSeed and special guest artist Andrew Ghrist are pleased to announce the sixth official print release of our 2015 print suite "Tales from the Deep: Stories, Myths & Monsters" - a fine art print suite to help save our seas.

Artist statement:

The Scar by China Miéville is a novel which has been a part of my life for many years, and has travelled as my companion through since adolescence. I've attempted to depict the Avanc, a colossal marine creature described in The Scar. It is a beast unbridled by our conventional imagination, miles long and strong enough to tow an entire pirate city. The Avanc is shown here after being summoned from a foreign place, its sublime nature derived from other worlds appears as ephemeral bubbles on the ocean floor. The otherworldly nature of Miéville's novels is parallel to our understanding of the ocean. With every discovery breaking the surface, he pushes our expectations and continuously reminds us that the ocean is mysterious, unending, and larger than ourselves.

Artist: Andrew Ghrist

Title: "The Celestial Hippocampus"

Printmaker: Andrew Ghrist

Edition size: 140 signed / numbered

Print details: Five color screen print with gold metallic inks on French Old Green paper

Dimensions: 18”x 24” inch

Prints will be available for purchase at 12pm PST Wednesday, June 17, 2015 via http://shop.pangeaseed.org/

+1 thanks to a PB! Very excited about this. This print here surpasses everything here did for the Jungle Book series, by a mile!
