In the personal work of illustrator Andrew Fairclough, the artist’s cerebral explorations are infused with comic and pop influences. Stylistically, his work has a kinship with the drawings of Charles Burns or other Lowbrow luminaries, while also showing Fairclough’s love of vintage spot illustrations, retro science fiction, and “the textural wonders of degraded print.”
Much of the work below is part of a body of work titled “Total Control,” described as exploring “themes of introspection, confusion, duality and impulse control viewed through the dead-gaze of technological distraction and the mesmerising flow of infinite information that is everywhere and nowhere at once. … The resulting body of work constructs an uneasy yet hopeful atmosphere awash with abstract textural explorations and haphazard experiments.”
