FEATURED MEMBER - DAVID WIGHTMAN
Based in the London’s creative hub of Hackney Wick, artist David Wightman’s work uses layers of precisely-cut, brightly-painted wallpaper to create abstract works and hypercolour landscapes. Wightman draws on postmodern techniques like hybridity and pastiche, along with basic geometric shapes, to reinvent and almost send up established genres. While his abstract works often take the form of rounded and square targets, his landscapes present familiar scenes such as mountaintops, injected with swathes of bright colour and simplified in a comicbook-esque style.
