City to Country Life Art Project - the artists
The artistic team have previously worked with the likes of Google, BBC, ITV as well as working on “team building” projects and “community ventures” such as rejuvenating disused community areas.
We had the pleasure of speaking with some of the artists that we worked with on our nature art project.
Years painting: 9
Style: My paintings tend to tread the fine line between abstraction and figuration, juxtaposing organic structures and geometric patterns. Having experimented with paint for as long as I can remember, I am now honing my spray-painting skills and enjoying creating works on a large scale, with speed I didn’t know was possible. Though based in London, through my painting I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Berlin, Milan and Norway.
Favourite things: Green and Black's organic dark chocolate ice cream, running, snowboarding, London.
Years painting: 12
Style: I started painting in Brighton around 2000. I took a lot of inspiration from the graffiti artists in the area and developed a bright, cartoony style. I started painting walls all over London a few years later and began to mix more realistic elements into my street art. Nowadays, I like to work with realism, typography, graphic design and random cartoon elements. I’ve been on TV a bunch of times and travelled the world with my art, painting in New York, Paris, Milan, Rome, Belgium, Amsterdam and Canada.
Favourite things: Sneaker collection, iPod, sketchbook, Coco Pops, sleep.
Years painting: 10
Style: Much of my work spans multiple creative disciplines and promotes off-kilter, character-driven concepts that combine a playful approach to colour with an inquisitive eye for composition. Think Fruitella funk with a twist of cheeky satire and dark humour in equal measure.
Favourite things: Exploring abandoned spaces, skateboarding, 1930s' animation, chorizo.
