You can hardly read a British magazine without stumbling upon work by York-based artist Mark Hearld (1974). But I still can't get enough of it.
His work is a modern version of artists like Ravilious and Bawden, but you can also see his love for Picasso, especially in his pottery.
He not only makes Bookcovers and illustrations, but also prints, paintings, pottery, and designs wallpaper and textiles.
He is often mentioned together with collegue and friend Emily Sutton, but his work is more colorful, and altogether fuller, often working in collaged layers of painted paper.
Where Sutton draws her inspiration mainly from manmade environment, Hearld draws his from nature.
