Apricot Mantle broke into the lowbrow art scene in early 2009. First showing at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in the “Everything but the Kitsch N’ Sync” show. He has since kept busy creating new drawings and custom themed frames for other shows in Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, Portland, New York and Atlanta. He has a bachelors in Illustration from Kendall College of Art and Design.
His artwork is inspired by various Science Fiction and Horror movies, taking from them the cheesy and kitsch aspects. They are his envisionments of B movies that are fleshed out using vivid colors and strong cartoonistic realism.
