The Artist: Zed in the Clouds
My work is an exploration of human nature and interaction with the wider environment. I like to explore subcultural identities, provide social commentary and interact with the audience by posing questions etc. My single biggest influence is Hip-Hop culture, having a background in graffiti has had a huge impact on my creative process as an artist and the associated mindset trickles down into nearly all aspects of my work in one way or another, whether overtly or otherwise. Other significant influences include old-school cartoons such as Asterix, Calvin and Hobbs and Garfield, and also more traditional fine arts movements such as surrealism and impressionism. I am also open for commissions as a muralist, illustrator, fine artist or for graphic design work.
People's Art Fair: Winter Show
In the bleak mid-winter with the cold nights drawing in, Bristol in lockdown, a global pandemic rolling through our communities, Brexit on the near horizon, economic collapse looming from every side and a tory government barely holding things together, those of us not out grouse shooting or visiting Barnard castle needed to bring a little colour and magic back in our lives.
The People’s Art Fair Winter Edition brought together over forty amazing artists, ready to dazzle you with their work. The closed doors of lockdown have hidden a frenetic world of quiet creativity, and these creations are now ready to spill out into the world. Featuring spray paint, collage, photography, cyanotype, stencils, bone china, metal work, dominoes, paper sculpture, acrylics, clay, illustration, screen print, glass painting, fairy lights, beeswax, biro ink and various weird trinkets found on the floor, as always the People’s Art Fair brings you a cornucopia of visual art to suit every taste and temperament.
