Featured Artist: Mr the Beef
Drawing inspiration from street art, mid-century design, overheard conversations, brutalist architecture and a childhood in the 1980s, Mr the Beef's work centres around the humorous world of characters that fill his sketchbooks.
Based at 3rd Space Studios in Sherwood, Nottingham, he spends his days creating unique, playful and bold characters on a variety of surfaces; through drawings on card, print on paper, paintings on board or found objects in an accessible and vibrant manner. Mr the Beef is one of the founding members of the illustration collective Brothers of the Stripe.
