Welcome to Guy Chapman Art!
A self-taught and passionate artist since childhood, I’ve drawn many portraits for people including music artists Meatloaf, Adam Ant, Judy Cheeks, Kenny Thomas and rock group Thunder. I’ve developed my own illustrative-style of highly detailed ink drawings that I call “Imaginaria”, in which I hide little faces and names.
I have produced a creative art book entitled “Use Your Imaginaria!” which is available from me directly at £6.50 postage-free : successfully tested in a Year 4 primary school class this is designed to help spark the imagination in children and encourage them to explore their own creativity. Some SEN teachers have used it for pupils they teach who are on the autistic spectrum because of the detail it contains, and I am now working on a second book that is richly illustrated and will be “a story book without words”, designed especially for children who may find reading hard or are autistic or, like me, have ADHD.
So if you’re looking for something a little different for that special person, do contact me and I will be delighted to chat about your ideas and see what we can come up with!
As a point of technical interest maybe, all original work is created using Caran d’Ache colour pencils (Pablo, Prismalo Aquarelle, Supracolor, Museum Aquarelle) with Uni Pin water and fade proof pigmented ink pens. I have just started to have all my prints produced using a 100% cotton OBA -free paper called “etching rag”, further enhancing the giclée process for a greater quality print.
Enjoy your time looking!
