Graham Carter – Artist Spotlight

This month our Artist Spotlight showcases the stunning work of illustrator, printmaker and 3D artist, Graham Carter.

With over 20 years’ experience working in the industry, Graham Carter has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients such as The New Scientist, Waitrose, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Aardman, Lloyds Banks, Aviva and many more. Alongside his very successful commercial career Graham is a prolific printmaker selling his limited-edition prints, and original boxed artworks across the globe.

“I draw inspiration from a variety of sources. Sometimes I let my mind wander in a café or on a train and develop a series of images from a little thumbnail sketch. I find objects/lighting/people in the street sometimes inspire me, so I might take a subtle photo and bring it back to the studio to use as a springboard to inspire an image or a story. Although I am drawn to nature, and the secrets of the animal kingdom as a source of inspiration, I am equally drawn to the man-made, clunky technology of yesteryear. You may find the occasional clockwork or steam-powered gadget lurking in the bowels of the image if you look close enough.”

Here is a small selection of the incredible new work featured in Graham’s recently updated portfolio.
