Norfolk-based Adam Batchelor is an artist at the cutting edge of a new wave of illustrators, producing intricate, evocative drawings with a subtle political punch. His current work focuses on our relationship with nature in an attempt to address our rapid departure and divide between modern society and the natural world.
Born in Norfolk in 1988, Adam Batchelor studied Illustration at Norwich University of the Arts and graduated in 2009. After an exploratory experience In Nepal he began making work in late 2010.
Having previously focused on bold graphic self initiated projects and sculptural model work whilst studying illustration, upon graduation he began to teach himself how to create realistic imagery using only mechanical pencils and coloured pencils on paper.
A nature lover and farmer’s son, he currently lives and works in the countryside near Norwich, UK, where he also works as a illustrator for clients including: XL Records, The Wellcome Trust, Suhrkamp, Fool Magazine, Faesthetic, Christian Aid & Adbusters.
