About the Artist

Nello Shep is a concept artist who creates surrealistic sci–fi scapes and abstract imagery of outer space and the universe. Most of their work has its roots in astronomy and artificial intelligence, and Nello has studied astronomy and physics, in addition to fine art academically, while never losing focus on the dreamlike imagery that drives their art. They are working as a new environment artist in the video game industry and Nello’s art continues to grow into something more strange and fantastic each day.
