Symbolic and Electrifying Paintings of Mythical Beings

San Francisco-based illustrator and street artist Nick Mann (aka Doodles) often spends his time traveling around the United States creating complex murals, but we’ve been admiring his electrifying ink paintings on found paper and other mixed media works. The images reveal a host of inspirations that seem to stem from folk art and mythology, occult and mandalic symbolism, and other esoteric sources. Visit Mann’s mystical world of fantastical creatures in our gallery below. Purchase the artist’s original works over here.
