From the Artist's Website:
Gregg Buxbaum's interest in art and the fantastique was fuelled by an early exposure to the imaginative, colorful art found in comics and the Baroque, dark images in horror films. Mostly a self taught artist, his formal art training consists of a year at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Arts and some courses at The School of Visual Arts.
Encouraged by his friends, family and muses, Gregg spent many hours using various media (pen and ink, marker, colored pencil, pastels, dyes, and paint) capturing the weird, grotesque, and macabre. Over time his style evolved expressing a vivid and bizarre world of creatures perverted by science and the unknown. Beautiful glamour ghouls, mouldering lurkers in the dark, and horrendous dooms. Gregg's art celebrates the weird and unusual, viewing his inner horrors with love and affection, as old friends (or fiends if you wish).
Gregg counts among his influences: the imaginative comic art of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Alex Toth, Richard Sala, Mike Allred, Bill Sienkiewiz, and Mike Mignola. The macabre, twisted humor of cartoonists Charles Addams and Gahan Wilson. The great surrealists: Salvador Dali, Magritte, and H.R. Giger. The German Expressionist and Dada art movements. The classic horror films of the past, present and the future classics to come. The limitless talent of artist, novelest, filmmaker Clive Barker. The weird artistic genius of filmmaker Tim Burton. The films of auteur Russ Meyer (and the outragously abundent women there in). And last but certainly not least the life and work of Vincent Price. Best known as America's most beloved master of the macabre, who off camera was the antithesis of his spooky image. A witty, down to earth midwesterner, he delighted in a wide variety of interests: an accomplished writer, cullinary and art expert - a modern day renaissance man who was a great inspiration and lesson in life.
