Studio Member since 2010

b. 1972

A self-proclaimed “metal-head,” Lilly’s work is very much inspired by the music he listens to.

“I’m a metalhead and that’s what my art is about. I draw tornadoes, lightning, skulls… anything rock and roll!”

Skulls, flames, tornadoes, cyborgs and a multitude of other subjects of impending doom are common symbols in Lilly’s work. Most fascinating is his ability to combine all of these influences together, into a single, cohesive work.

“I love to make art. It keeps me occupied. I want my art on t-shirts, hoodies, posters and album covers. People say my artwork is cool.”

Like heavy metal, Lilly’s art is a force of technical dexterity, distortion, aggression, masculinity, and pure, raw, unapologetic loudness. In July of 2017, Lilly was recognized as the studio’s “Artist of the Month.”
