AXIS is an artist from Charleston, West Virginia specializing in acrylic paintings. AXIS creates artwork entirely freehand; no masking or measurements. He has coined the term "Post Art Deco" to describe his particular style, which brings classic Art Deco design into the 21st century. Use of clean lines and geometric shapes are hallmarks of AXIS’ work, combined with strong approximate symmetry and fractal self-similarity. AXIS’ art has been described as cerebral, masculine, and arcane.
