The Amazing Art of Phil Hansen


That's the first word that comes to mind when I think of Phil Hansen's art. "Wow" is the second.

When I first saw Phil Hansen's work and technique I was mesmerized! His artwork is amazing, but his technique is what raises him to a level that is rarely visited by us mere mortals. His tools consist of many of his body parts; hands, feet, chest, cheek, stomach, to name a few, but then in comes ink, matchsticks, teriyaki sauce, wads of paper, or his own blood, and the finished product is a real standout.

His imagination is amazing, and while you may not agree with his message, the way he conveys that message through his dual-level art is brilliant.

If you take a few minutes to check him out, I'm sure you'll be as amazed as I was.
