Jeff Soto is one of my heroes. He sights Star Wars and Robotech as his inspirations and it shines through in the sheer drammatic quality of his work that is interspersed with his trademark imagery of robots which are almost playful in nature. His technique is incredible and his ability to use colours is, for me, unaparalleled in the contemporary art world today. What I really like is that he has taken street art aesthetics and dragged them kicking and screaming into galleries across the world from which he has garnered serious plaudits from all and sundry. I'd fill my house with his pieces if I could afford more.
