Richard Locket

I am a local artist born in Beverley and now living in Leeds. I studied Graphic Arts and Design from Leeds Beckett University and have worked throughout the northwest, whilst living in Leeds, Manchester, Hull and Liverpool.

I enjoy discovering new places and seeking out new experiences, especially if there is cake on offer. I love bright, sharp and colourful images taking my inspiration from the buildings and landscapes of Yorkshire.

 

I create my work by building up the images digitally with thousands of individual blocks of colour much like collage. The style is known as flat design, famous for minimalistic and concise use of visual expressive means.

 

Nowadays the term is widely used as the opposite of rich design due to harmonic simplicity taken as the basis of this design approach. The most prominent feature of this style, that actually inspired the name, is applying a flat 2-dimensional visual look to the work.

I welcome commissions for your own house to be created in this flat graphic style.
