There is a cherished legend about Saint Ambrose that tells how a swarm of bees descended near his mouth during baptism - a harbinger, they say, of both his sweet disposition and his future eloquence as a Christian apologist. Whether or not the English graphic designer/artist Craww was consciously referencing that story in Vanity is unimportant; there is a similar enough notion being presented here and one imbued, needless to say, with an erotic character that does not necessarily prompt religious connotations. Furthermore, the woman's eyes must be taken into account with their tears of either grief or post-ecstatic languor. The overall effect is haunting - and the fact that this was achieved with an impressive economy of color and line bespeaks commendable artistic skill.

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.
