30×30 Featured Artist – Brian Farris and Child’s PlaySimon Hawes
Brian is one of our 30×30: 1988 exhibition artists, and in this series of showcases we aim to show and tell you a little more about the artist, their work and why they chose the film they will be creating work for. Also WIP from their 1988 piece and details on how you can grab one of these for yourself.
Child’s Play (1988)
A single mother gives her son a much sought-after doll for his birthday, only to discover that it is possessed by the soul of a serial killer.
About the Artist
Art direction, illustration and optimism. That’s me.
I’m a diehard Batman fan. I have three tattoos, which I designed myself. Music complements almost every activity I do, and my music library is vast and varied. I’ll watch the trailers for movies I’ve already seen, just to feel that excitement again. I find inspiration in just about everything. Salvador Dalí said “Everything alters me, but nothing changes me,” and I like that.
I’m just trying to make my way in the world – aren’t you?
