I was born somewhere in Scandinavia, on a pitch black mountain under a midnight sun. The earth cracked and split with the torrent of salty rain from the grey sky. I had one name and one name only... Rivgas.
My heritage is deeply rooted amongst nomads. My ancestors believed the dead existed beside them, helping them with ordinary tasks in life. My paintings are my own interpretations of the dead walking beside me, and maybe even you!
Growing up my main interests were exploring nature by digging up old artifacts, drawing and photography. I attended Art and Design school. Upon studying photography for five years, I became a professional trained photographer.
I have always been a fan of horror, and the mysterious, dark side of human nature -- the human psyche. Antiques and genealogy are also among my many interests.
I am a mixed media artist. I use watercolor paint, acrylics, and old photos to birth the images I create. I also use pencils and even my fingers as tools. To complete my works, I take a photo and digitally manipulate them via a mobile app. Sometimes I will mount the original paintings onto a background that I have painted and covered with rusty items that people have tossed away.
You can find a selection of my work on Instagram at @rivgas_art. I am currently in the process of developing a website, and filling an Etsy shop. Please check my Instagram for updates.
