ARTIST INFO

 

About 

 

Ewan Taylor, AKA Redbellyboy is a filmmaker and artist. Originally from Aberdeen, Scotland, he studied at Edinburgh College of Art before moving to London, where he lives with his brilliant wife, beautiful baby boy and constantly hungry cat. He works out of Print Club London in Hackney. 
 
He draws inspiration from pop culture, film, graphic design, and loud music and tries to squeeze as much of it into his work as possible. He likes bright colours, bold lettering, intricate designs, a well-placed swear word and trying to add some humour into his work. He dislikes mosquitos and writing about himself in the third person. 
 
In 2020 and 2021 Redbellyboy was selected by Print Club London to create a print for the iconic Katharine Hamnett 'Choose Love' charity campaign. 
 
In May and October 2021 he was one of 100 artists selected by Saatchi Art to take part in The Other Art Fair, London. FAD magazine underlined him as one of the best five of the fair. 
 
Collectors include Caroline Quentin, Paul Whitehouse and Frankie Boyle.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

I like to play with words and colour and this was a great opportunity to put them both together. I've always liked the phrase "Christ on a bike!", mainly because it makes no sense yet conjures such a strong image. Elvis could be seen as a modern day Christ figure, he certainly continues to inspire such devotion. So I thought it'd be fun if he was our 'Christ' on a bike.
