ABOUT THIS ART:

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

We are belatedly (and happily) entering an era where the self-described self-taught artist is no longer treated with either condescension or dismissive arrogance by the critics. The English graphic designer Craww, for example, instructed his own muse personally and patiently with results that speak well for any and all plans in his future. His style is a cool and thematically rich one with the semiotic toys of melancholy abounding. This ethereal woman could have sprung from a Greek tragedy or from a gothic novel or from the very infrastructure of a half-recalled dream. The deliberate (and barely noticeable) disproportional elements reveal her as being more mystery than menace - and thus a more beguiling seductress to the viewer's eye.

ABOUT Craww:
Self taught artist and habitual doodler, Craww lives and works in Sheffield, drawing inspiration from daydreams, music, comics, nature, gin and an overactive imagination.

Craww likes ambiguity and his work explores the secret stories and connections of a constantly evolving cast of characters. Following tangled threads and discovering hidden undercurrents, it is a stream of consciousness ramble through the woods, populated with skulls, crows and melancholic girls. It’s direction influenced as much by accident and a short attention span as design.

He enjoys seeing his creations taking on a life of their own as he brings his world to life with a mix of elegance, balance and disciplined chaos, using acrylic, graphite, ink and whatever else is at hand. With a background in graphic design, his art is informed by a sense of balance and narrative flow, making sense of the seemingly chaotic drips and washes of colour. A style that, with successful shows in the UK and US, has found collectors and fans around the world.
