About the Artist:
Self taught artist and habitual doodler, Craww lives and works in Sheffield, UK drawing inspiration from daydreams, music, comics, nature, gin and an overactive imagination,
His work is a stream of consciousness ramble through the woods, uncovering secret stories and ambiguous connections, it’s direction influenced as much by accident and a short attention span as design. It is a world populated with skulls, crows and melancholic girls embraced by flowing lines and natural forms.
He enjoys seeing his creations taking on a life of their own as their world is realized with a mixture of elegance, balance and disciplined chaos, using oils, acrylic, graphite, charcoal, ink and whatever else is at hand.
Following a career in graphic design, his art is informed by a sense of balance and narrative flow, making sense of the seemingly chaotic drips and washes of colour.
With successful shows in the UK and US, he has found collectors and fans around the world.
