Iain Macarthur

About: "Born in Swindon, England in 1986, I became a fanatic of art at the age of eight when I was first introduced to art through the medium of cartoon television shows and comic books. My first ever comic book was from the Batman series. Ever since then I’ve been obsessed with art, drawing odd fantasy drawings and Anime characters. As I grew older, I diverted from Anime drawings to more realistic figures and faces, always striving to make them more detailed and photorealistic. I am always carrying around a sketchbook on my travels; drawing on the bus or in a coffee shop. When I am continually sketching and drawing, it helps me to improve my skills and become even more motivated to expand my art. My work can be described as surreal and unique in its own way. Using mostly pencil, watercolours and pigment pens, I create portraits of ordinary people but create them in a unusual way by, embellishing patterns and watercolour effects into the portrait to give a vivid explosion effect—transforming their faces from something plain to something entirely bizarre and wonderful at the same time."
