My name is Sam Branton. I graduated from the Norwich School of Art in 2007 and have since been a working artist based in Oxford. I’m really interested in the relation between traditional drawing styles throughout art history and contemporary childish cartoons such as Ren and Stimpy and Anime. My work often combines these two leaving quite striking images. I think there’s a nice contrast between the sophisticated smartly attired figures standing proudly amongst these creatures which look sweet and innocent at first but on closer inspection can appear rather menacing and perverted.
Since leaving Art School I have been lucky enough to be included in some exciting shows, showing work in London, LA and Stockholm.
Here’s a collection of different pieces, I hope you enjoy them.
