A little bit more about Graham Carter
Graham Carter has exquisite talent and produces award-winning art, limited edition prints and sculpture (Graham Carter won the 2007 Visual Arts Prize at the Brighton Festival Fringe) for us all to enjoy.
The artist creates a world of mystical tales and oriental folklore, transforming tree stumps, migrating Yeti’s and homemade robots, striking landscapes coupled with a sensibility of colour, strong narrative and charming characters.
With a studio and a home in Brighton, Graham Carter's illustrative art takes on many forms and one of the most magical things about his work is the reward given to those who take the time to explore each image. Little creatures poking out behind a hedge, a box bird perched on the boughs of a tree, and the ingenious use of found backgrounds to create sumptuous textures for his prints.
Originally from Gloucester, he studied his Foundation in Cheltenham before taking an Illustration degree at Brighton University, and a Post-Graduate Diploma at Central St. Martins, graduating in 2000.
Graham Carter was a founding member of the celebrated illustration collective Peepshow, working on projects such as Lost Consonant king Graham Rawle’s Expo 2000 installation and commissions from Diesel Jeans and the BBC. Graham Carter has worked as a freelance illustrator for nearly ten years and has enjoyed solo commissions from companies such as Orange, Bupa, Visa, Monster.com, Camelot and many UK broadsheets.
