Raphael Greaves

Can you introduce yourself in a few words…
I am Raphael Greaves, I’m 26 and based in Bristol, UK. I divide my time between my illustration practice and a business I run with my brother called Printed Goods.

How would you describe your creative universe ?
I have a strong appreciation for how architectural forms affect mood and therefore often reference architectural and sculptural forms in my work.

Where does your inspiration come from ?
I have a wide range of influences, but artists who use strong composition to create bold images such as Hockney, Matisse, Ray Morimura and Edward bawden particularly appeal to me.

What is the project you dream of making happen?
I would love to work on a large scale mural commision.

What are you working on right now ?
At the moment I am in the process of designing new products for Printed Goods, we have a shop opening coming up soon so there is a lot to get ready for it!
