“I have always enjoyed drawing and painting from an early age, driven by a natural inclination to express myself and also through encouragement from friends and family. I studied Illustration at HND level but changed courses to Graphic Design, I knew I could draw but didn’t really know what to do with it. In the past 10 years I was drawn towards fine art and only in the past 5 have I found direction. Learning techniques, actually finishing ideas and forcing myself to find a style only highlights the frustration I have with it, you could say the style chose me.” – Daniel Stepanek
“My art is a passionate reaction to the dehumanising effects of 21st century life, offering a satirical examination of fractured identity in a culture where the relentless pursuit for fame and material pleasures becomes aligned with an ominous sense of looming mortality.” – Jonny Burt
Ben Dehaan prints portraits using UV sensitive inks that cure (or dry) when exposed to UV light. Dehaan doesn’t dry his prints, instead he leaves them to allow the ink to run. On his website, he’s got a video time-lapse capturing the process. The portraits produced then become abstract, using this brave technique.
