Artist Bio

Finishing a degree in illustration at Sheffield Hallam in 2014 Enso has worked in graphic design, painted signs/murals and ran a screen printing company. Now focusing solely on calligraphy, painting and tattooing, each skill-set influences one another through his use of Automatism and Surrealist drawing techniques. Enso’s mentor and role model was his Grandmother, Calligrapher and Chief Heraldic artist at the bureau of Heraldry in South Africa. Enso aims to contemporise these traditional crafts and skills with more recent processes and schools of thought, creating immense depth in his work.

AYUP is the AOI Sheffield meet-up, open to all illustrators.
