Mark Whalen’s Ritualistic Paintings

Check out artist Mark Whalen aka KillPixie’s magical worlds, exploring communication, sexuality, and ritual, littered with masked patterned people, mythical animals, and an eerie landscape all their own. His pieces incorporate mixed media ranging from paint to pen and ink to newer works with resin. He’s recently collaborated with musicians The Grates on their album Secret Rituals which seems to be a beautiful fit for them both.
