Astrid is a Psychology professor and an oil painter whose works were first rooted from photorealism as he admired the works of some notable hyperrealists such as Osamu Obi and Yung Sung Kim.
His earlier works are consisted of portraits of different wildlife and exotic animals. As he explored his subject of choice, his personal style started to emerge, transitioning from realism to magic realism with a futuristic or cybernetic twist. His process starts with the creation of the concept which is rendered digitally before working it on the canvass in oils or acrylics.
His present works showcases his take on human psychology that is being manifested in the forms of animalistic representations of the primal drives, motives, and archetypes as he is influenced by concepts of psychologist Carl Jung.
