Richard Berner is a Brighton based illustrator, whose work draws inspiration from a colourful array of cultural iconography: from Star Wars to Disney, Brighton landmarks to Amy Winehouse, Berner creates illustrations bursting with imagination and eccentricity. With a flare for fine art technique, all of Berner’s ink drawings are brought to life with colour and texture, often applying paint drips and splatters, before the print-making process.
‘Bowie’ depicts the eponymous singer, painted with thick lines of black pigment, which Berner has allowed to drip for a dynamic and textured effect. Into his iconic, 1970s hair, Berner has added blocks of bright colour in rainbow shades, capturing Bowie’s vibrancy and unconventionality with artistic prowess.
