NIGEL Gilbert is an award-winning UK artist now living and working in Andalucia. He has an exhibition of prints at Bio Beach Club, El Morche from October 1 to 28.
Formerly an architect-illustrator with an international portfolio of clients,
Gilbert has previously exhibited at the Mall and Anise Galleries in London,
the National Waterfront Museum, the Oriel Ynyws Mon, and the
Royal Cambrian Academy, all in Wales.
He describes his style as “influenced by comics panels and Japanese woodcuts. Ink line and wash are used to set down shapes, tones and textures. Colour washes are overlaid to build up a graphic effect in-depth.”
He adds “I want my hand-made work to be seen as a welcome escape from the manufactured anxieties and antagonisms of today. So here are pictures of life’s unguarded moments, portraits of human character and attitude, landscapes of stillness and solitude, and images conjuring up memories and dreams.”
