I am Zach Kitzen. I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but I was raised in Valencia, California. I am heavily inspired by the music I indulge myself in (specifically Tupac Shakur), and Star Wars. Most of my works are done with pencil and paper and made as realistic as possible with twisted surreal qualities. I draw with very defined lines and many layers to build up my image. I prefer grey scale because I believe you see more subtle tonal and value differences. I admire Vincent Van Gogh most but take high influence from the drawings Leonardo Da Vinci and M.C. Escher. I hope to simply make people think with my art.
