Berlin-born Kieling, currently a graphics student at Central Saint Martins, works across illustration, etching and linocutting, taking in subjects including portraits, comic-book style panels, bizarre scenarios and, as you can see animals.

Kieling says his work is inspired by the Berlin grafitti scene as well as explorations into new approaches such as woodwork, moving-image and traditional print processes.
