Born March 17, 1969, he would have been 46 this week. Exquisite, thrilling, grotesque, and never, ever, ever dull - his work continues to mesmerize and invoke emotion.
I relate more to that cold, austere asceticism of the Flemish masters, and I also love the macabre thing you see in Tudor and Jacobean portraiture.
For me what I do is artistic expression channeled through me. Fashion is just the medium.
