Australian comic book artist Ashley Wood paints an epic vista of expressionistic robot warfare in his art book World War Robot. I find these pieces triggering an immediate and impactful emotional response in comparison to the scores of technically competent but trite robot fare out there.
(above) One of my favourite pieces in the book, capturing the zeitgeist of WWII’s era perfectly.
The medium used seems positively oil paint to me, but I understand Ashley Wood sometimes combine it with digital techniques. Does anyone know if this is the case here ? There were no technical notes on the making in the book so I have no clue.
Fantastic pieces of art work all around from Ashley Wood, in a huge hard cover volume. This one gets my highest recommendations.
