Im Gnasher. I'm an artist who has painted large scale murals for Xbox, Ford , West Ham Utd and Easyjet, amongst others. I'm covered in spray paint, acrylic and emulsion and I wouldn't have it any other way.
It all started in 1985. The growing UK graffiti movement brought some well-known graffiti artists to my hometown of Harlow in Essex. Back then, I was an eager young graffiti writer mainly painting letters and words, but seeing these artists create characters to go with their letters inspired me to develop my own, hyper-real style of spray can art.
As I went on to study art and graphic design, I left behind the world of graffiti and travelled the world concentrating on Djing and graphic design. But 16 years later, in 2009, a friend bought a load of spray paint and invited me out for the day: graffiti was back in my life and I was hooked.
Who I work with
From PR companies to record labels to interior designers – I work with clients to create bespoke work that fits your brief. i've produced murals for boardrooms in Nokia, commercial hoardings for the latest game releases for Xbox and home interior commissions for a red carpet list of celebrities.
I particularly enjoy painting characters from films and the murals I've done for children and teenager's bedrooms are a popular service.
How I work
I'll ask you to send me a brief so that I know exactly what you want, when you want it and where you want it to be. Then I'll work with you to come up with a cost plan for a design that meets your brief and once that is agreed a series of sketches and work plan for making your vision a reality before we get to the exciting part of carrying out the work.
