London based artist Mellor's body of work explores taking personalities and imagery from reality and creating bizarre fictional characters. Think of Mellor’s characters as having an acid trip with your mates. Using a psychedelic but gritty palette, the work is somewhat inviting but surreal. Exploring the behaviours of humans in modern day society, with a satirical outlook on life creating warped beings; a juxtaposition of human and animalistic elements. Using both traditional and digital methods, Mellor explores both illustration and sculpture. Mellor’s miniature work and toys focus on the often overlooked aspects of the urban environment, such as grime, rust and decay; from London architecture, to tiny tinnies and a grubby stash of fifties.
