GEORGE RAPHAEL WEAIT
I am a 21 year old art student studying BA (Hons) Illustration and Animation at
Kingston University, London. Currently I am in my third and final year and will be
graduating this summer, 2021.
I take my ideology, my friendships and lifestyle from my University experiences and
push them right back into my art. I love portraying the way that I see the world,
through visualising characters amongst crazy parties, happy memories and wild
observations. I use a wide range of different application mediums and a broad
colour spectrum, constantly developing my way of working, thinking and illustrating.
As well as studying full-time, I am also a fashion model for NEVS Agency London.
This side of my career opens new doors to discovering artistic contacts, creative
environments and fantastic teams of people. This radiates constant influences
which I fully incorporate into my own art, as I have a huge passion for the fashion
world, be it for the clothes that I am wearing and customising to designing my own
I always look at life with a brighter and more surreal approach, as I see
extraordinary colours blasting and emanating from inanimate objects and the
natural world, more so than that which meets the standard human eye.
I acknowledge the magnificent uniqueness in each living and sentient being and bring the collective entirety to roaring life through exaggerated features, radical movement and deeply intriguing faces. I create expansive, imaginative narratives and the people I draw get to live in pure playfulness, bright illumination and proper madness.
Paper and pencil is with me wherever I go. Life is better through a drawing.
