Whether he is applying thick brushstrokes on canvas or he is painting large-scale murals, Void treats his materials and subjects with a delicacy and attention to detail.
Focusing on dark, mysterious topics like sickness and death, the artist creates his paintings with a desire to explore the bizarre, as it is captured in his memories. For his murals the artist travels the world, making different works, inspired by a city’s history, culture and social state.
