Beautiful and Nightmarish Imagery
Aaron Horkey’s artwork is often a combination of both beautiful and nightmarish imagery – filled with hauntingly strange creatures that emanate from within his imagination out into the natural surroundings of his hometown in rural Minnesota, in the heart of the Rural Midwest.
Key personality traits include debilitating social ineptitude and a perverse attention to detail.
Currently ensconced in a bucolic whistle stop just west of the Mississippi, he whiles away the hours staring at his chore list and cultivating ulcers.
He is the sole survivor of the Black Osprey Dead Arts Society and founding member of the Cottonwood County Druids Skateboard Gang.
Some of his clients include INIT Records, Flip Skateboards, Playge, ISIS, Converge, Neurosis, Boris, Andrew Bird, Grails, Genghis Tron, Spitfire Wheels, Fat Possum Records, Deathwish INC, Hydra Head Records, Bruce Horkey’s Wood and Parts, Big Brain Comics, Flight of the Conchords, Mogwai, Ride Snowboards, Magic Bullet Records, Khanate and 420X10 Records.
