Long Beach, CA based illustrator Tarik Mask creates these incredibly outstanding pieces. almost immediately upon discovery he made his way to a favorite for our books.
in some of Tarik’s pieces he fits various themes of underlying messages accompanied by the faces of familiar characters and a variety of humanoid animals. Tarik doesn’t seem to hold back in bringing his mythical creations to life. they carry a type of energy the art world needs more of. we see it as authentic expression, others might read it as something else entirely.
Tarik combines worlds in his works. that’s the kind of imagery we enjoy deeply. it reads as artistic freedom. there aren’t too many other pleasures of the world that can compare to that fluid nature of expression.
