About

Going by the pseudonym BK DIECI, I am an emerging artist working across a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, textiles and digital media.Beginning with the traditional medium of drawing, I transform my dreams and nightmares into intimate digital and painted playgrounds. I want to bring my array of thoughts, imagery and characters together to explore these relationships, their impact and the forms they inhabit beyond the canvas.Laden with sexual undertones, mythical creatures, exotic environments and human flesh these dystopic worlds delve into my own precarious fantasies. Amid the furore of vibrant colours are dark, sinister nuances harnessed in dripping bodily fluids, bloody tear stains, disjointed limbs and appropriated faces.Inspired by natural environments, wildlife and the associated patterns derived from their forms I combine these with my obsession of pop culture. From living among the quirky streets of Tokyo that ooze colour, sexuality and disdain for the ordinary to the intricacies of western comic book characters, hyper-real fantasies and video games.Currently my artistic practice investigates themes pertaining to perfection, gender and sexual identity. I utilise fantasy genre as a means to surpass language and culture in an attempt to convey these dystopic scenes.This is my dark, twisted, paranormal fantasy from deep within my subconscious. No excuses, no lies, no apologies.
