The work of Amsterdam artist Raymond Lemstra is definitely trippy. The style of these illustrations is imaginative and abstract, with a slight nod to aboriginal culture.

Raymond Lemstra exercises great skill and complete creativity with these pieces, as each seems to provide a personal peek into the mind of the artist. A self professed fan of awkwardness, Raymond Lemstra looks to reflect an insatiable curiosity in his work.

Implications - The few artists who experiment with tribal works and patterns are influential and popular because they incorporate a culture that may be otherwise lost, but that is interesting and significant in terms of its history and culture. This is appealing to customers who are eager to experience other cultures in terms of art and history.
