United Kingdom
My name is Wrapto and I paint canvasses, walls and people’s faces for a living. I take what I do seriously and I enjoy it immensely.

I’m a freelance artist living around a bunch of creative friends in the heart of Scotland. Recently I completed a postgraduate degree in comics/sequential art and published my first print comic. Aside from that I am mostly self-taught, but have attended several paid courses at art schools to supplement my learning.

Drawing is my life; I don’t know if I believe in fate but I feel it’s what I was put here to do. Anything else would feel wrong, and generally I’m willing to do pretty much anything if it will improve my skills. Most of what I produce is surreal or abstract, but I sometimes upload more orthodox stuff like fanart, face-painting and commissions. My style vary widely as I like to experiment in different mediums, but I’m most comfortable working with markers - typically Copic, uni POSCA, Kurecolour or Krink. More often than not I use traditional tools as I prefer being hands-on, though I do create digital work with a tablet too.

WHILST YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO SAVE AND SHARE MY ARTWORK, BUT PLEASE DO NOT STEAL IT/CLAIM YOU CREATED IT. I AM NOT A WEALTHY PERSON.

I've got an Etsy shop coming up soon for prints and originals, but my tumblr is where I talk the most. Throw me an ask there if you want a real conversation - I am a chatty type of soul.

Silvery alien blobs in a desert; very Dali. Very Grant Morrison.
I liked it a lot so I saved it, you needn't thank me!

The feeling is mutual. I am not being a sycophant here - I feel like our styles come from similar places.
It'd be great to collaborate on something maybe some day.

I know what you mean! Wow.. what is that place?
I'd say my work is motivated by certain ideals about flow, pattern, aesthetics etc. and that it stems from a wanting to express these perfect, abstract mental concepts. It's like the forms I see in my imagination are metaphorical for my emotions.
Do you ever feel like you 'unlock hidden truths' about yourself when you make art?
