Art…but not as you know it!

09th May 2016

steel-life-artistsmeet.jpgThe eclectic works of Hilly (aka Stephen Hill) will be taking up residence in Artistsmeet this summer in an exhibition dedicated to graphic design, painting and big bold colours!

Hilly is a trained Graphic Designer, professional cartoonist and all round creative type. He prefers pencils to pixels and drawing by hand, working large and sadly can’t resist a bad pun. His influences include: Dinky toys, Marvel comics, Sci Fi, Gerry Anderson, Scalextric, The Dukes of Hazard, Steve McQueen, Motorsport, Mad Max, Top Gear, Banksy, Motorbikes, Jack Kirby and pop art.

Having only recently entered into the world of exhibiting in 2015, Hilly’s work has so far seen great success, with exhibitions in professional gallery spaces and bespoke events such as Motorsport trade shows. He has also been commissioned to produce various paintings and his first public space mural. More information and a portfolio of colourful artworks can be found at
