Sprays, flicks and splatters of colour abound in Eddie Perrote’s pattern-adorned work. Eddie uses stencilled, drawn and collaged elements plentiful in decoration. We like the unrestricted bundles of motifs and the obvious passion for colour and surface design.

The different talents of French artist, Sebastien Feraut aka Niark1 are as multiple as are the eyes of the weird, wolfish creatures that inhabit his work.
