Introducing… Richard Marsden
Clean lines and block colour. Precise and perfectly weighted composition and style. Marsden’s approach to his screen printing is near clinical in application. Inspired by architectural forms and construction, his works aim to display the physical strength and permanence of buildings. He likes to give particular attention to the forms within construction diagrams; the areas of architecture you don’t normally see.
Marsden recently undertook a week long residency in Belgium at the Frans Masareel Centrum, honing his print making skills. The Centre operates as a working space to graphic designers, artists and critics who want to work with intaglio, relief printing, screen print or lithography, or who want to investigate the relationship of printmaking with other visual arts. The focus is on creation and experimentation in the workshop.
He graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a 1st Class Degree in Graphic Arts & Design in 2017. And completed his MLitt in Fine Art Masters at GSA in 2018. He now lives and works in Glasgow.
We love his bright and colourful works and can’t wait to see how his ideas develop. Check out his full collection now.
