Toby Raine’s ongoing portrait series of infamous or popularised male figures — including Bob Dylan, Aleister Crowley, Ozzy Osbourne, and Elvis Presley – sees the artist examining various notions of masculinity in a tongue-in-cheek tribute.

Raine is interested in the performative aspects of painting. Inhabiting his alter-ego Baron Yeti he often paints according to a specific set of conditions, limiting the number of brushstrokes or working to the rhythms of a particular music track.

Raine energetically pushes and scrapes thick impasto paint across the canvas, to the point where colour and form merge and threaten to dissolve or obliterate the figure.
