Originally having studied Digital Communication Design at the University for the Creative Arts Epsom, Emmanuel has followed a more illustrative path, choosing the produce hand drawn pieces incorporating more traditional drawing techniques. Biro and ink pens are the mediums used in his work.
His work celebrates the dualistic quality of simplicity and complexity of patterns, mark making and line work.
Themes include beauty, abstraction, distortion, the relationship between simplicity and complexity, and exploration of the ‘self’. Influences in his work range from stylistic editorials, Chaos Majik, film, comics, literature and music.
