We are very excited that 17th & Oak is one of our 30×30: 1989-90 exhibition artists.
Some words from the artist:
“I’ve been putting pencil to paper for as long as I can remember, drawing whatever my mind could muster up. Creativity comes as naturally to me as breathing so I always knew that I wanted to become an artist. After spending 10 years building up a wealth of industry experience as a Graphic Designer I decided to change the direction of my creativity and focus on fulfilling my dream of becoming a freelance Illustrator. My illustrative journey started in 2017 with a commission from Universal Pictures. The job was to illustrate three posters to be used in the marketing of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ movie franchise. Since then I have collaborated with a wide variety of international clients on a diverse range of exciting projects from editorial art to movie posters to book covers. Each piece of artwork I create is rooted in capturing a moment in time and telling a story with dramatic effect. This is accomplished by mixing my unique illustrative style with the oodles of design knowledge I’ve acquired over the years. I always strive for the WOW factor by incorporating heavy perspective, strong composition and detail that will make you look twice. Being a lover of typography, I have a tendency to incorporate type into my art in distinctive and original ways.”
