Graham Carter

Illustrator & Director

Illustrator and print maker Graham Carter's work takes influences from around the globe and right at home. His themes and ideas finding a striking balance between the fantastically imagined and movingly real.

Graham’s love for illustration begun at a very young age when he begun copying Garfield comics perfectly by hand…then when he discovered you could actually have a job drawing he headed to Brighton to study Illustration, then completed a Post-Graduate Diploma at Central St Martians before launching a very successful career as a critically acclaimed commercial Illustrator.

In 2003 Graham began screen-printing, discovering an entirely new illustration style and way of working. After exhibiting for the first time at Brighton Art Fair in 2004 and being selected to exhibit with a few galleries Graham fast became one of the UK’s best loved and most collected printmakers.

Over the last 10 years Graham has produced several critically acclaimed solo shows, art-directed some award-winning animations with Ticktockrobot, and found time to build a giant yeti puppet for his 2012 exhibition! In 2008 Graham founded Boxbird Gallery with his wife Alice, and he still works from their space in Hove, where he can often be found getting messy with inks and printing new work!
