New Derrick Fielding
I remember spending much of my childhood with my head buried in a comic usually The Beano. I would often relish being sent to bed early as a punishment for some misdemeanour so I could read the latest escapade of The Bash Street Kids.
From an early age I loved to draw and as I grew older, I began to use this passion to unleash my elaborate imagination to create games for me and my neighbourhood friends.
Fortunately, my father was a painter and decorator so my earliest canvases were the backs of rolls of wallpaper that were supposedly for his customers.
NEW Wolf Blazar
Wolf Blazar is a contemporary digital artist based in Chelmsford, Essex.
With a self-taught artistic and creative background, he has developed a distinctive and totally unique artistic style he titles 'Double Hexposure'.
Each piece starts with a composition sketch and is then transferred to a digital tablet to be painted digitally, stroke by stroke.
The 3D-Hex Artworks are all made & fabricated by hand, by the artist at his studio. The additional Hexagon pieces that provide the floating three-dimensional aesthetic are delicately trimmed and are layered across specific sections of the artworks and are floated at three varying heights.
NEW Tim Shorten
Tim Shorten presents places and moments from within his imagination. Like a master storyteller, Tim presents his creations with conviction, captivating the viewer.
