More about Will:

Will Blood is an excellent emerging contemporary artist, hailing from Brighton, UK. 

With a penchant for merging the macabre with the naive, Blood’s aesthetic is at once charming and unsettling, as familiar fantasy figures - from Disney Mice to Star Wars Droids - are revealed with all their inner workings on show: anatomical sketches of an animated crowd. 

With a successful background in design, having worked for hundreds of high-scale brands worldwide, featuring in magazines, and dialysing public work and murals across the globe, Blood’s work is meticulous, his approach streamlined and minimal, while attention to detail is unparalleled. Clean monochrome lines meet bright patches of printed colour and composition always packs a punch: this is street-to-print at its very best.

Now ten years into his career hes moved from commission work to focusing solely on his fine art series ‘the book of bare bones’ named after his first book release in 2015. 

Last year saw several international exhibitions from Europe to Australia to Hong Kong and signing with an agent in Asia to represent him for the region.
