I love art, especially illustrations, but I was blown away when I saw BioWorkZ's ornate animals. These are truly mesmerising and awesome. BioWorkZ a.k.a. Ben Kwok is an L.A. based graphic artist and illustrator.
"Born in Taiwan, raised in Los Angeles, art has always been a huge part of my life. When I could first used chopsticks, I was already doodling on whatever I could get my hands on. I love complex hyper detailed artwork. To lose myself into the “flow” of drawing is about as good as it gets. I’m very passionate about what I do, that’s why I continue doing it.
I was heavily influenced by the works of H.R. Giger, Alfonse Mucha. Now, I find myself being drawn into type/lettering inspired artwork. Especially works by Aaron Horkey, and David A. Smith. Their attention to detail is simply amazing. I have yet to see any contemporary artists come close to their caliber. There are many other inspiring artists such as Hydro74, Jon Contino, Android Jones, Audrey Kawasaki, to name a few."
The intricacy of each drawing is amazing with some images taking over 15 hours to complete. Many of these have been made into tattoos which look spectacular.
