Mad Desperado, aka Lain Healey, an artist of the world, resides in the amazing city of Charleston, SC but will always consider Pittsburgh, PA his hometown. In addition to his art, Lain works as a stand up comedian.
Lain is an alumni of Hampden-Sydney College and studied under David Dodge Lewis, Barger Professor of Fine Arts, who developed this mixed media technique.
Lain Healey creates his large format illustrations using a resist technique combining wax, layers of India ink, and charcoal. The texture and quality of the lines lend a rawness to his work.
Carefully chosen subject matter, celebrity or the man on the street, is depicted in unflinching honesty.
