Onyx, artist profile image Onyx is a self taught artist, born & raised in east London where he still lives & works today. Art revealed itself to him a few years ago after an accident left him in a coma for several weeks and a year in recovery. Onyx turned to art as a means of therapy and a way of expressing maybe what he had been through sub consciously. A memory of the future is only possible if you have been there and an Onyx piece seeks to take you on that journey. An abstract reality built from discarded objects regain a new purpose. They are no longer a toy to be played with or a classical figure to be admired but are now a means to evoke a deeper memory. Onyx has an obsession to create moments of our future from tiny fragments of our past. Each object he uses is aimed to take you on your own personal journey as you are sucked into his alternative reality. Themes of metamorphosis and transformation are the cycle & growth of an Onyx piece, crossing boundaries between what is familiar & what is not. His works conjure the extraordinary from the ordinary. They contain a complex use of symbolic figures & iconography to portray the constant battle between the light & the dark in the mind of the 21st century man.
