10. Iain Macarthur
I’v looked at alot of artist’s and illustrators throughout the years, all with different styles and different medias. my favourite artists that influences me in my work is alphonse mucha, klimt, lucian freud, jenny saville, james jean, david choong lee, sergio toppi and ashley wood. i also gain knowledge and inspiration through cartoons still as well as lighting, peoples face expressions , eyes, different forms of patterns and shapes.
in 2008 i graduated from swindon college in HND illustration and maybe hopfully will progress in studying in BA illustration somtime in the future. I have done a few exhibition last year and this year such as the swindon college exhibition for illustration and graphic design students, D/AD new blood exhibition at earls court london and a solo internet exhibtion on phoneboothgallery.com.
my work is described as surreal and unique in its own way.Using mostly pencil,watercolours and pigment pens i create portraits of ordinally people but create them in a unusual way by embelishing patterns and watercolour effects into the portrait to give a vivid explosion effect. making there faces from somthing plain to somthing entirly bizzare and wonderful at the same time.
