Nick Gentry

British artist Nick Gentry uses obsolete technology, recycling it in his work then painting over it in acrylic paints and metallic leaf to create amazing portraits that are surreal, beautiful and at the same time disturbing. The eyes in each work are what nails the viewer, they are so alien/unreal yet they seem to communicate with the viewer directly and intimately. His work is fascinating and his commentary around consumerism, cyber-culture and recycling is clear and engaging.
