I am...
Bernard Rangel’s unique art style lies in his myriad of fractal human references from his birth to the present day. Born in Aden, South Yemen, and educated in Rajasthan, India, then in Ireland, Blackrock College and Trinity College Dublin, he was prepared to delve into the world. He set sail to travel the seven seas, and the complexity of his choices was his search for a concrete meaning to his existence. In 1985 he went to Brazil and emerged from its bosom in 2009. Now he is based in London. As a spiritualist he understands the ethereal part of Creation. As a rational being he translates this artistically in a new art genre: Contemporary Tribal Surrealism. He explains: “through this work the baggage of one’s previous lives comes to the fore as one is confronted with his or her archetypal visual registers that linger in the depths of the soul”.

Great forms within shapes: openings within twisted bodies; symbols inside spirals. Cheers. I am going to be cautious because there is so much work to view and I do not want to spread myself too thin. That could be seen as narrow minded though

Great forms and colour combinations. The animation is tantalizing. Your compositions are all expressively balanced and ace but to see the shapes develop in that shimmering manner was fantastic. It was precisely the correct style of movement to illustrate the growtgh of that form. I like your crazy spiralling creatures
I see from the utube clips that you animate in various ways. Nice splitting of the picture
