Owen Gildersleeve is an artist based in London, specialising in handcrafted illustration, set design and art direction.
Owen's Illustration work often plays with light and shadow, frequently combining multiple layered paper-cuttings with graphical forms and hand-rendered typography. His playful handcrafted creations have won him numerous awards and have seen him produce illustrations for an array of international clients as well as exhibiting across the world, including New York, London, Tokyo and Bangkok.
Owen Gildersleeve's Studio is a space for art direction, collaboration, curation and experimentation. It is here that Owen and his team aim to explore new ideas and possibilities by working closely with an array of exciting creatives, including photographers, animators and stylists.
