Formerly a member of ‘Puck Collective’, a group of renowned creatives, Will Harvey is a London based, freelance artist. Working across a range of artistic outlets, Will’s artwork could be described as abstract, taking inspiration from the Memphis style to develop illustrations that merge shapes and vibrant colours to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. Alongside his artworks, Will Harvey, is also a keen photographer keeping an intriguing mix of photographs archived within his online ‘photo diary’, that consist of images captured of his day-to-day.
The piece Will Harvey’s presented for size? series has been made by collaging black and white rough pencil drawings, to create a typically abstract piece.
We caught up with Will to talk about his size? series piece.
Hey Will – what’s your earliest memory of being creative?
I think maybe the earliest memory or at least the one that sticks in my mind the most would be making rip off Mondrian’s from cut out sugar paper in a primary school art class.
Could you describe your style of illustration in 3 words?
Abstract, Geometric, Collaged.
What’s been the proudest moment of your career?
Getting some work featured in Little White Lies magazine was pretty cool.
Are there 3 artists that have inspired your career and work?
Barney Bubbles, Eduardo Paolozzi, Nathalie du Pasquier.
What was the thinking behind your piece for size? series?
The thinking behind my piece was to take the ‘size?’ question mark, abstract to simplier shapes, then create a composition with the question mark camouflaged within.
