Espira

p

Espira was born and raised within a strict Mormon church family in the remote English Countryside. Trained from an early age to become a Missionary for the faith, he slowly turned his back on the Religion to become a self-taught artist moving to London in the 1990’s.

The collision of visionary aesthetics and transgressive iconography within his work lure the spectator into a world which evokes an Apocalyptic and dangerous message. Often considered by many to be a savage and darkly humourous assault on contemporary culture. ‘

Soldier and Citizen considers people whose lives are caught in the turmoil of war on both sides. I photographed American soldiers returning to Fort Drum between tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. And then I travel to Amman, Jordan to photograph Iraqis who fled since the US-led invasion. ”

” Rooted at the intersection of the material and the ordinary, and the ambitious and the extraordinary, my work explores small acts of human exertion, gesture and creativity in an increasingly automated and mass-produced society. Reconstituting the grist of middle class consumerism, I work repetitiously with office supplies and household materials deferring to their intended formal and functional destinies..”

” In my paintings I depict crowds of figures gathered in the pursuit of knowledge and entertainment. My work is about the effort to understand our world through the various lenses of history, spirituality, science, music, horror films, consumerism, video games, theater productions, sports, literature, etc. Above all I am interested in a life lived vicariously.” – Ryan Mrozowski
