About Jeremy Lampkin
My style is defined by an expressive exaggeration of light, color, and distorted features. Physical features are stretched, very much inspired by the look of the Moai statues of Easter Island. I've been fascinated by the esoteric mysteries of anthropology my entire adult life, studying various worldviews spanning from ancient times to present day. Gnosticism may be the most influential philosophy to me, though I prefer to think of my path as more holistic. In my view, there is one meta-mythology composed of all mythologies. Mythology influences a lot of my artwork.
I am self-taught. I never had a real mentor or any kind of formal training, though my studies have been extensive. I've studied symbolism in the past only to purposely forget about it, as inspiration is better unconscious.
