Bio - Oscar Culliford

Oscar Culliford is an artist who works primarily in lino print and pattern making, a medium he started experimenting with during lockdown, due to the restrictions of creating art in a studio bedroom. He takes his inspiration from the traditional styles of wallpaper and textiles, a subject he has become fascinated with due to the history of hidden iconography, motifs and more overtly political messaging; integrating a modern day perspective within his use of motifs. He uses these instillations to bring challenging topics and current issues to the forefront of his designs, whilst keeping a focus on the intricacy and traditional beauty of hand carving and hand printing his motifs.
