The hundreds of tiny people which Craig depicts in his paintings, represent characters from all walks of life. These figures exhibit a variety recognized character and body types, conveyed through the artist’s brilliant use of posture and movement. The people are often arranged in patterns to form an iconic image; “connected” to each other on multiple levels. As Craig continues to explore and develop his subjects, this theme of connectivity remains consistent. His subjects range from nondescript urban environments and architecture, to technology and pop-culture. The paintings from his technology series, explore the inter-connection between the masses and our gadgets and devices that we use daily.
