Ink Work: His work pays homage to his time in Asia, cleverly marrying Japanese calligraphy techniques and mediums including Japanese’ Sumi’ inks with more traditional western mediums such as watercolours and acrylics. Bold yet subtle use of black inks and paints reflect shadows that would otherwise go unnoticed with trademark accents of colour bringing personality, emotion and a sense of fun to many of the pieces.
The artwork also takes Inspiration from the subtle beauty of both the natural and man-made worlds, with artworks themes ranging from the critically endangered Black Rhino to images of the iconic Double Decker buses.
Abstract Work: Looking to express himself in different ways, Alastair built on the success of his trademark artworks using Japanese ‘Sumi’ ink by releasing his first collection of contemporary abstract art works in January 2018 following a number of eagerly awaited commissioned abstracts. His abstracts showcase his array of creative skills with their unique qualities capturing one’s gaze time and time again.
