Erdy is a versatile multi medium artist ranging from traditional Art practices such as Painting and Sculpture to Digital practices such as Animation and Graphics.

His art is informed by movements and memory, embracing what is there in front of him and dissecting it to understand the hows, whys and why nots of what is. Language often does not do this nor imagery justice. Which is why he continues to cross medium boundaries to find, see, acknowledge, express and bring to others the world around him in a different light. The idea is to ponder and learn from others view. The gift of awareness through each of our subjective perceptions.

Stuart Kinlough

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Stuart Kinlough is a graphic illustrator and designer. He creates colourful graphic compositions with an abundance of ink, solvent transfers and the odd bit of sticky tape.

Stuart illustrates for an eclectic range of clients. He has worked extensively on illustration projects with the BBC, including large-scale wall art and installations in their London, Birmingham, Bristol and MediaCity studios. As much of his work is based around the themes of business, communications, education and science, it has been used in specialist industry publications such as The Treasurer, Architectural Record, The Exhibitor, Think Investor, Chemistry World, Nature, Law Alert and Construction Manager. His work has also appeared in various articles for Woman & Home, NPR, The Guardian, New Statesman and amongst others.

His working process is mainly digital but it always begins with a healthy dose of experimentation and mark-making. He likes creating a chaotic mix of paint, screen prints and text, before fusing them with vintage photographic elements and bold graphic halftone layers. Approximately 85% of his images contain the colour pink.
