If you’ve never seen the art of R.S. Connett a.k.a. Vomitus Maximus, get ready to be tantalized by his work. The closest artist one can compare R.S. Connett’s artwork to is Swiss painter H.R. Giger. Both have styles that represent the vision of the future in dark and detailed ways, which includes the use of “tubes” connecting tortured forms and nightmarish creatures.
Here is R.S. Connett’s “Supplicant” above an H.R. Giger piece to see what I mean.
Connett’s work is more colorful, whereas H.R. Giger’s are a study in grey and steel. Connett’s work will be on show at an exhibition in September. Details are below.
