Welcome to the world of Luke Walwyn Contemporary Art, Illustration & Art Direction. I class myself as a multi-disciplinary UK based artist, illustrator and art director who creates a distinctive visual language with the power to communicate and connect. My artwork has been employed commercially, servicing a wide range of clientele across the retail, travel, fashion, beauty and leisure sectors both online and in print. When it comes to illustration, I earnestly aim to capture the essence of a mood, a timeless style or a high fashion trend to initiate new conversations. My signature style is a synergy of explosive colour, high fashion aesthetic and abstract graphic elements often woven together with statement typography to capture the imagination. It has been nurtured from a lifetime of discipline (and passion) in photography, illustration, graphic design and fashion communication. I always endeavour to capture the spirit of modern brand values. Co-founder of Voir Fashion Magazine, and Artistic Director from its inception until 2019, my role afforded me the privilege of working closely with individuals and brands to create art-directed magazine features, editorials and on-brand advertorials - to keep readers fully engaged. It was there that I jointly positioned the digital publication at the leading edge of fashion communication, to an international generation who are daring to be different. I have established a long-term relationship with Wexas Traveller magazine, for whom I illustrate bespoke articles authored by international correspondents including Fergal Keane. I am currently available to discuss Art, Illustration and Art Direction projects to create branded and bespoke content for a variety of influential media platforms including magazines, commercial and retail spaces, exhibitions, film and private art collections. I have recently curated a body of fine art prints and canvas work which can be purchased exclusively from my website.
