About the Artist
  • Raised on a diet of Ray Harryhausen films, H. P. Lovecraft novels, comics, Walt Disney World rides and other Florida tourist traps, Pooch paints images that seem to exist in a bizarre afterlife. His art is a visual cocktail of these influences—with a shot of lowbrow culture—shaken and stirred, then served up in a souvenir tiki skull on the Day of the Dead.

    Tattooing since 1994, Pooch's work has been featured in numerous galleries, books and magazines throughout the world.
