Willy Wonka Cubism

It's not surprising to find out that Ken Berman has a degree in architecture. His oil/acrylic/alkyd paintings sometimes looks like architectural blueprints and most often like complicated contraptions with hints to cubism and the industrial revolution. And yes, a little reminiscent of some fantastical machine that could be found in the chocolate factory. At least in his newer pieces, which are more depictive, his earlier work have a rather abstract feeling that reminds me more of alien cityscapes.
