Scott Shaw! is one of those artists whose work is so widespread, you may not even be aware that you know it.

Nigel Sade has been an artist all his life, and a professional artist since 2003. His art in form is Symbolism (much like Surrealism), represented in either realism or abstract, exploring reality, love, and our basic beliefs. Throughout his life, Nigel has delved into every aspect of art, from drawing to painting, to music, religion, science and philosophy. He tried to go the “normal” route, even graduated from college with a degree in philosophy, but making art wasn't a mere choice for him, but a necessity.
