Irok was an accomplished artist from a young age growing up in the western suburbs of Brisbane with a graffiti and street art background. This introduced the artist to experimenting with all types of mediums outside of just spray paint. His work now has a strong, confident message and representation of his life and the surroundings around all of us seen through his eyes and presented to others in a very real, moving and visceral fashion with his unique use of brush and acrylic house paint. Originally the house paint watered down to save money, but this slowly became part of the the tell tale signs of the free flowing slightly chaotic yet organic splatters and drips that are generally outside the usual portrait artists focus on fine detail that became his signature work he is known for today. Irok sees his work as being progressive and versatile.
