"My paintings are really just extensions of my doodles. I like to work that way because when I am doodling and not really thinking about what I am doing, it allows me easy access to my subconscious. I try not to get too specific with their meanings, yet I do see a theme of anxiety and vulnerability running through them. Many of the characters I paint are very ugly and freakish on the surface, yet they also have a sort of innocence about them, kind of like the way I see humanity. Above all, they do feel to me like they are simply portraits of us."
Chet Zar is most well known for his work with Tool in make-up effects & animations for live shows.
beinArt Publishing released Chet's first book, 'Black Magick - The Art of Chet Zar' in 2012.
Zar is one of 50 contemporary artists featured in Metamorphosis 1 (beinArt Publishing).
