Artist Arik Roper harnesses the magic of epic fantasy for bands like Sleep, Black Crowes, High on Fire, and Cathedral. Roper’s work has the sensitive touch of classic fantasy as written by J.R.R. Tolkien and H.G. Wells.
There’s no brutality and guiltless gore in his designs, Roper’s work has the air of beautified barbarism. Robert E. Howard’s Conan character would fit into Roper’s world perfectly.
Roper’s paintings have a streamlined epic might to them — these are strong works designed for heavy music and dense narratives.
