Meet the London based contemporary artist reverberating across the globe. This is no ordinary story. This is the story of Endless
At the first glance of Endless’ work, you’ll notice right away much of his work portrays a neutral homage to the key elements of society today, spanning a wide range of subjects such as brand worship, advertising, consumerism and celebrity culture. Endless makes much of his art on the streets, but his work can also be found in London galleries and homes of well-established collectors worldwide. Vamp magazine caught up with the renowned artist to find out more.
What spurred your interest to follow this creative path?
I have been creative ever since I can remember and always knew I wanted to be an artist. I went on to study fine art for six years and worked hard after graduating to become a working artist. There was nothing else I ever wanted to do.
How did your upbringing influence your work?
I grew up in the rural Suffolk countryside, which made me want to move to London and experience city life. The stark contrast in country and city life always interested me. My parents have always been highly supportive from a young age and encouraged my creativity, which always allowed me to express my creative imagination.
You’re an exceptionally varied artist- do you have a preferred discipline?
It depends on the particular artwork, but the best way for me to portray my ideas is via paintings on canvas, with acrylic and spray paint. I also like the aesthetics of mixed media artworks, with layers of collage. I try to split my time between putting art up on the street and creating artwork on canvas; both are important to me.
Can you describe your creative process?
Most of my artwork starts digitally in the design phase. I use photoshop almost as a sketchbook. I can express and experiment with ideas quickly and almost make a digital render of each piece before taking it to a canvas. The most time-consuming part of the process is coming up with the idea and putting it together. The easiest part of the process for me is physically making the painting.
How would you describe your style at the moment?
At the moment, I am enjoying creating my new magazine cover artworks. I think people are enjoying them because they can relate and recognise recent news stories that are featured. I am creating a lot of mixed media works at the moment. I have been experimenting with 3D digital renders printed onto a canvas, combined with layers of stencilled and freehand painting.
What’s the most challenging part of being an artist?
Sometimes I feel that I have too many ideas all at once, and it can become overwhelming if I don’t have the time to get all the ideas out. Every artist has the burden of never being satisfied with their work. I try to use this as the driving force that keeps me pushing forward with my ideas and creativity.
Is it hard to part with your work?
At university, we were taught not to be precious with our ideas or our work, so I have always had the mindset of letting the work go, emotionally, once it is finished. This is similar to showing my work on the streets – the street art could last a day, or it could last a year, it is out of my control. Either way, it may have impacted at least one person and served its purpose.
