Nicky Barkla – artist from Melbourne, Australia. Nicky’s illustrates psychedelic paintings of movie characters (mostly villains).
Using a variety of materials including oil, acrylic, water colors, pencils and markers, the self-described ‘mixed media’ artist creates unique depictions of cultural icons ranging from Spiderman to Edward Scissorhands and Huckleberry Finn.
“There are various odd ‘effects’ used — whether that be waiting for materials to dry or using oil to separate it,” Barkla told the Huffington Post in an email. “I’ve even mixed make up and white-out at one point.”
The artist added that she has also used chalk dust and pastel shades of house paint to achieve different effects.
Barkla, who has no formal art training, said she prefers a more freestyle approach to painting. And the amount of time she takes to complete a work varies widely, taking anywhere from two days to several months.
Though some of her work featured below is digitally enhanced, she’s steering towards “a more rough look,” aided by the impasto technique.
But Barkla also has a sense of humor expressed in her work.

Her illustrations :
“You were the shadow to my light
Did you feel us?
You fade away
Afraid our aim is out of sight
Where are you now?
Was it all in my fantasy?
Were you only imaginary? “
“Maybe the wolf is in love with the moon
And each month it cries for a love that will never touch”
