The Rubbish Artist by BUCHU

Mixed media, vibrant, quirky, unique, original, RESPLENDENT, RESPONSIBLE art painted on to mostly RECLAIMED surfaces. A mix of original work, high quality giclee art prints, some print making, paper cut art and some illustration too. Originating from a fusion of cultures, continents, teaching methods and experiences, what I have to offer is unique and varied.

I have painted all my life and had my first solo exhibition in 1998. My degrees were in Visual Communication and Graphic Design and I have always really enjoyed Illustration and Typography. My formal training definitely gives a different edge to my compositions, choice of colour and layout to help bring my vision and narrative I’m painting to life. I also absolutely love vibrant colours and playing with textures. I work intuitively and my art is inspired by LIFE; be it my observations and time spent in nature, humour in the everyday or interpretations of the human experience.


I am also open to bespoke commissions on request but require the freedom to interpret the subject matter and deliver it in my own unique style.
