Quoted as one of Mondo's "most respected artists", Aaron Horkey is a bonafide heavy hitter in the art and illustration world. Co-founder of The Vacvvm (along with Mitch Putnam), his intensely detailed inkwork displays a highly original talent and the long hours of what can only be described as a labour of love.
Typography created by his hand evoke illuminated manuscripts, but completely over shadows them, as it is incorporated as part of the artwork itself. His love for the printed page comes through so clearly as he frequently embosses his prints to create a 3D effect either within the image or his signature.
Aaron Horkey hails from Windom, Minnesota and describes himself as having a perverse attention to detail, along with having a predilection for desolation and megafauna. His client list includes The Melvins, Flip Skateboards, Fat Possum Records, Andrew Bird, Flight of the Conchords, Isis, INIT Records, Mogwai, Ride Snowboards, Blood Milk Jewels, and many more.
