Featured Artist: Loch Ness
Loch Ness is a Freelance Illustrator / Street Artist from Bristol, UK, specialising in psychedelic surreal imagery. His artwork playfully disorientates you to a place that oozes a twisted harmony and Zen.
A variety of mediums and techniques are used in each piece to take you on a trippy ride of feel-good absurdity. With the use of spray and acrylic paints playing the main part, he also often uses collage and handmade recycled wood cuts to add another dimension so that the viewer can fall into a dream like dimension where anything is possible and colour has no boundaries.
Some of his clients have included BBC Radio 6 Music, TATE Britain, Teenage Cancer Trust, Rip Curl, Posca Pens, BBC, Red Bull & Grolsh to name a few. Loch Ness has also exhibited in galleries around the world, from London to New York.
