Firstly, let me say thank you for taking the time to look at my portfolio. I am Joseph Crisp, a fine artist and freelance illustrator living in the UK based near London. I studied Fine Art’s at the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) for three years. Covering the following art practices:
- Print making
- Graphic design
My main focus is fine line drawing and tattoo designs. When working in exhibitions and for clients I am always asked the same question: ‘What sort of artist am I?’ I have many different answers to this, because I like to look into a large variety of art practices I would say my main focus is illustration, over the years I have found this has become a part of me, and it’s somthing that has grown on me over time in my day to day life.
My process is to firstly talk to a client and then sketch out my drawings using a pencil then go over with a fine tip pen in detail to make certain, important parts, stand out, and trying to add as much detail as I can into certain illustration. Ok I am going to be honest with you here …. It would be foolish of me to say that my art practise was based solely on the use of one medium, I don’t like to narrow myself down to any one given aspect of art so I am open to different ideas and style.
I have a key focus within my art practise where I look into a large verity of subject matters, normally based on the human body, nature, pollution and traveling and try and portray beauty within destruction, as I mentioned before illustration is a large part of my practice. I enjoy looking into different concepts and would not base my work on one particular area.
In addition to my drawing and painting,; using these methods combined, I like to produce pieces of work that I would call mixed media; involving paint or a screen print as a base and adding detail and layers by using collage and drawing. I aim to create a sense of union between the often quite strikingly different methods of art.
