Gus Fink (b 1979)
Gus was born and raised in the cold mountains of Pennsylvania where he started his art career in 1999 by painting on an old dictionary.
He pulled from a dumpster. By turning nothing into something Gus adapted his own unique style that mixes nightmares, emotions and creative ideas.
He has since turned his artwork into multiple toy lines, fashion, video games, jewelry and more. In 20016 Gus started writing and directing short films.
The starting point for his work is to pull new ideas out from the universe and place them onto the canvas of choice.
His goal is to innovate all aspects of the arts and entertainment industries so that there can be a global shift of not accepting mediocrity.
Each day hundreds of new followers find the work of Gus Fink and are intrigued by his unique visions.

"My currency represents infinity, it doesn’t matter the value. I paint in a One-hundred-dollar bill the same way I paint in a one-dollar bill or in a piece of garbage. For me it is only materials that I can transform them in a piece of Art and give them a different value, the value that someone believes is worthy."
"What I love the most about The Antique Card Collection is that I can take forgotten people that exist in the past and nobody cares about now, but I can transform them and updated them to these days and give them a new seance of life."
"My favorite thing in creating is the developing something brand new. Something that didn’t exist before. I get to explore out myself as if I am viewing the world for the first time".
