I can see the influences that Romanian artist, illustrator and muralist, Saddo has listed in his work. Those influences are listed on his website as: old masters of 15th – 17th century, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Bosch, Brueghel, Walton Ford, naturalistic illustration, pop surrealism, religion, mythology. I also see some Frida Kahlo influence. The images are an interesting amalgam of so many familiar artists, images, trends, etc. What influences do you see in his work? I feel like they are a Where’s Waldo of inspiration.
