Not long to go until our Arts Careers Fairs in Nuneaton and Stratford-upon-Avon. In advance of the event, we want to introduce you to the artists, professionals and companies who you will meet on the day.
When and where?
“The workshop will provide the environment to discuss the values you place within art and its practice and how to develop these ideas into a viable art careers.”
About Nathan Parker (n4t4)
Nathan Parker (n4t4) is an internationally-known street artist who is based in Nuneaton and uses spray-paint as his preferred medium.
After studying Illustration in Manchester, today he has over 30 years of experience painting murals, not just in the UK, but also in Australia and Spain.
Nathan’s work has been exhibited in London, New York, Rome, Paris, Sydney and Melbourne and has featured in numerous books and publications.
As an artist he enjoys creating large-scale figurative artwork that is made up of intricate textures and double exposed images, using realism as a reference point for more abstract experimentation. His work is inspired by aboriginal art and graffiti and has a sense of movement and narrative.
What to expect at the fairs
Nathan will be doing an informal collaborative drawing workshop. You will use drawing and doodling as a tool to explore “why art matters to you”.
Each participant will be asked to draw a small piece of work which will then be connected to everyone else’s to make a larger collaborative piece, that develops organically, and hopefully promotes discussion.
Participants will approach drawing in a fun, playful way, focusing on the experience of the process rather than the final result.
The workshop will provide the environment to discuss the values you place within art and its practice and how to develop these ideas into a viable art careers.
Meet Nathan and many other established artists, this February. Reserve your spot online today.
