Moot is the alias of Preston based artist and designer Chris Dorning. His art work reflects the desire for a more colourful spin on life, with a real flavour of cultural diversity, inspired by his travels. He dropped us a line this week to show us some of his new work – Jester with Jacket & Lantern and Stay Tall Through Rough Times – part of a series of 5ft paintings he is currently developing. Catch up on with all Mooty’s adventures on his new blog here.
