The Winner of 'Artist of the Week' is Adam Higton!



Congratulations!




Adam Higton is a BA Fine Art graduate from UWE, Bristol 2008




Adam Higton’s work is based around themes of revelry and mysticism.  He marries his innate passion for drawing with strong inspiration from his own personal spiritual experiences.  These are reconstructed and re-told through the creation of his woodland characters.

His interest in folk religions provides a key platform to further explore notions of everyday life by creating a sensation of magic from the mundane.

A night at the library


In 2008 Adam had his first solo exhibition at the Detroit Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden and his second in 2010 at Analogue Books in Edinburgh. 

He has also recently formed the Jovial Woods Artist Book Collection, with the intention of hosting one-night events, in small local environments such as village halls, libraries and bookshops. Here a special collection of limited edition artist’s books including artists,illustrators and musicians will be exhibited.

  1. all the work on here is good but all has a very 'art school' feel to it. What about some MA students. Or even random, some of the best artists out there are relatively unknown.
    Just a thought, we al have them!
