Sam Octigan is an artist and illustrator who is based in Melbourne, Australia. His work is difficult to describe in a few words, not simply because of his varied mediums, but also because of his varied influences. Unsurprisingly, Octigan told Dazed Digital that his work is centred on variety, and that he doesn't restrict himself to a single medium, style, theme or message. Instead, it seems that he works on a plethora of different things at once in order to keep himself inspired. Sam Octigan's artwork in the featured gallery shows a series of portraits that take on new life with deconstruction and a melancholic air.

Sam Octigan is in a band, so it's no surprise that music holds a special place in his art, and up next for him is doing the artwork for his band's latest LP.
