A6 (10X15CM) ORIGINAL ARTWORK
SIGNED ON VERSO
Euan Roberts is a Hastings-based artist whose work focuses on imparting a feeling of optimism, hope or joy onto the viewer. His art is often upbeat in terms of colour, subject matter and composition, but can carry equally unsettling messages.
"I want my pictures to be visual mantras for the viewer. Lifting them up, dusting them down and telling them to keep going."
Euan's work aims to portray something that is simultaneously amusing, profound and nonsensical. He want people to see the joy he gets from making the art within the results and aims to inspire people to pick up a paintbrush and make something themselves. Something he believes is far more meaningful than just selling something.
He is regarded as one of the most exciting young artists to emerge from the ‘Instagram’ generation, having had three sold out solo exhibitions in London and Brighton.
