Sprigens is an artist, graphic designer, illustrator and painter who combines Middle Ages, Ancient Iconography and Pop, Surrealism and Psychedelic Art, Black Romanticism and Fantasy Realism. He studied at Harrow Art College in Brookhill, Middlesex and thereafter at Brunel University in Uxbridge, London. Here Sprigens acquired a Degree in International Business. After his studies, he founded his own design company Psiberia and for the next ten years specialized in industry cover artwork and advertising. Amongst his clients in this period were Sony and the Sci-Fi Channel, Clinique and Bloomberg as well as numerous CD labels such as Sanctuary Records, Megadeth, Flying Rhino Records, Big Life Music and Uriah Heep. Even in this time the work of Sprigens was characterized by a tendency towards dark edged phantasmagoria, showing optimistic abysses with pessimistic euphoria; a slope that has intensified in his paintings and drawings over the last ten years.
