REK is an established artist based in Brisbane, Queensland. His popular artworks draw inspiration from the beauty and intricate details found in the natural world. In particular he has become known synonymously as a photo realistic avian specialist. A practicing artist since the early 2000's, his fascination (and borderline obsession) with birds began in 2014. The reactions to these paintings is the other driving force behind this chosen subject matter. The way people respond to birds is often powerful. People who own birds as pets are incredibly passionate about them and similarly are professional wildlife photographers. these shared passions have led to collaborations between the artist and bird owners across the globe as well as career photographers. REK's detail-oriented mind sought to achieve an ever more realistic result. Years of intensive study and practice painting hundreds of birds saw his creations eventually evolving into photo realism. The unique composition of these animals and seemingly endless varieties has provided constant inspiration for the artist. Layering different design elements such as reworked fabrics or graffiti style texts creates a unique fusion of multiple elements and a truly individual interpretation of avian art. While being closely associated with the world of birds, REK has also been recognized independently for his male figurative and organic inspired abstract works, both of which have been honoured with notable art prize nominations.
