This giclee print on museum grade archival paper is a reproduction of a dip pen on card drawing by Mr Mead. This print is from a limited edition of 50.
This piece of is greatly inspired by one of Mr Mead’s favorite films ‘Princess Mononoke’, a Japanese anime. He is particularly inspired by the character of the forest spirit who creates nature wherever it steps. The use of flowers within this piece is in direct opposition to the blood and gore associated with slicing heads off.
Mr Mead’s terror and intrigue for animals dressed as humans stems from his childhood. Deciding to embrace his fear, he has developed his ink based style to create dark inhuman characters blending the animal, human and mechanic, a practice he nicknames ‘Bio-Mechanical Anthropomorphism’.
Working on large pieces of MDF with the smallest medium he can find, a dip pen, Mr Mead cross hatches and stipples until the piece is to his obsessive satisfaction.
After studying Animation in Bournmouth, Mr Mead went onto develop his traditional drawing practice. He currently works from Jamaica Street Studios in Bristol and regularly exhibits with Antlers, including his solo project - Dark Suits in April 2011.
