Artist : Dave Markham
Yorkshire artist Dave Markham specialises in fun and quirky depictions of buildings.The famous locations of writers, actors, and musician’s homes are the inspiration behind Dave’s collection “Brits and Mortar”. The pieces are full of character and personality, the whimsical illustrations bringing individuality and cheer to whatever environment in which they are placed.
Dave also likes to add a small depiction of a rabbit into his works and signature, another sign of the artist’s quirky personality that shines through in his illustrations.
When pressed on his work, his style, his creative vision, Markham simply adds; “I work quickly but in a controlled fashion. My work is direct. It embraces chaos but out of chaos comes a sense of order. I look at buildings, both old and new, and put my own slant on things. They are not chocolate box interpretations of houses nor are they photographic representations. They tend to be gritty with an air of romance”.
