Unique Drawings by Staffordshire Artist – Neil Harrison

Artworx Gallery are proud to showcase the début collection of unique illustrative drawings by local Staffordshire artist, Neil Harrison.

His style and approach is completely self taught following an eternal urge to draw and doodle. Neil has always been intrigued by the creative arts from an early age. He uses an approach to his work that requires full concentration for long periods of time, as he draws his work freehand with gold and silver ink on black paper, then adds several layers of ink to give a full and deep colour.

Neil Harrison’s exhibition is on display at Artworx Gallery:
1st November – 31st November 2012

Opening Hours Monday – Friday 9am – 5.30pm and Saturday 9am – 5pm.
Artworx Gallery, The Cedars Business Park, Avon Road, Cannock, Staffordshire WS11 1QJ.

Neil talks about his work, “I have been doodling and drawing from an early age, developing my style naturally as time progressed. One of my favourite programmes growing up was ‘Hartbeat’ the Children’s BBC television arts programme presented by the late Tony Hart, which deeply inspired me, however when it came time to choose what subjects to take at school, I was persuaded that art was not really a good choice and I should take maths and science instead. Being young and impressionable that’s what I did….”

“Upon leaving school, I went to university and attained an HND in civil engineering and then embarked on a series of many diverse and varied adventures, ranging from being a lumberjack in Cumbria to being a CAD technician/engineer and lots of things in between, but easily the most important is being a father to my wonderful children.”

“Whilst drawing has been a big part of my professional life, I have always continued to develop my personal style and recently decided that the time was right to take the plunge and show other people my work.”

“Having never studied art, I am completely self taught and would describe my style as abstract and organic free-hand drawing in metallic inks, taking inspiration from the world around me mixed with my interests of science fiction, fantasy and horror, the elements of which can be seen permeating through my work.”
