This art print by Scottish artist Daniel Seex features three white jellyfish on a dark grey palette. Seex created the moody piece by pooling water on mount board then added a thin ink solution and drops of ink. He then scanned the printed blobs on different sheets of paper and drew over with pencil, then came some photoshop jiggery pokery and pow, jellyfish prints.
Daniel works primarily in pen and ink adding colour and texture digitally and often building a picture from multiple works. This allows his work to have a flexibility that is useful when it come to illustration. He has a taste for surrealism and deadpan humour and would cite contemporary illustrators such as Tom Gould, Jon Klasson and Yuko Shimizu as his major influences. He currently lives in Edinburgh with his partner Julia. When he’s not drawing on something Daniel is interested in trivia, vexillology (that’s flag geekery), history, chemistry and sharks.
This super quality print measures 42cm x 21cm and is printed on to 260 – 350 gm, hammered art paper and yes, it would look pretty epic on your wall — just saying.
Exclusive to April and the Bear.
