His subjects are ordinary people mixed with intricate patterning and shapes. Each piece is created very photorealistic with pencils and different types of media such as watercolor or pigment pens. “I try to achieve originality and realism in my portrait,” says Macarthur, “as well as make the portraits more exciting and eye catching as possible.”
Drawing from the contortions of Egon Schiele and Salvador Dali, and patterns of contemporary artists like Lennard Schuurmans, Macarthur is able to twist, mold, sew, and finagle his characters into something entirely its own.
