Espira was born and raised within a religious Mormon family, training from an early age to become a Missionary. He slowly turned his back on the Religion to become a self-taught artist based in London.
Espira has become widely recognised for his powerful large scale paintings and digital illustrations. Showing a range of influences from the banal and everyday, high fashion, period costumes, raw meat, war images and ritualistic religious symbolism. The collision of visionary aesthetics and transgressive iconography within his work lure the spectator into a world which evokes an Apocalyptic and dangerous message.
