Chris Bissett - Jetpack Dinosaur

Aberdeen based artist Chris Bissett aka Jetpack Dinosaur focuses on reconnecting with our natural surroundings, offering quiet moments of reflection away from the busy world of accelerationism and enjoying a slower pace of life, drawing heavily from Japanese influences. The strict palette of black, white and red is partly due to being colour-blind, as well as coming from their fondness of technical drawing.
