Meet the people behind the brilliant Bristol Art Collective
First off there’s Ben Adams, photographer and founder of Bristol Art Collective. Photographer of a variety of subjects with landscape photography fast becoming his favourite. Luckily for the world of Bristol photography, 10 years ago Ben’s art and design teacher arranged a transfer to a photography course and the rest is history.
Next up we have Bruce Crowes, whose sign writing career has gone from strength to strength. Creating crisp, clean signage is what he does best; whether it’s gold gliding, traditional hand painting or anything else you might need, Bruce is your man; now working out of the old CID building in town.
Next door at The Island we have Rosie Mclay, who works across a wide range of media, from printmaking to sculptures as well as running a framing shop at The Island.
Then we have Dominika Scheibinger, our girl about town. She’s always got her camera in hand ready to take photos of anything from drunken Bristolians getting featured in NiteLife magazine to stunning photos of the Balloon Fiesta. She is also a frequent flyer and documents her adventures perfectly.
Fiona’s collage ability is next level. Using hand-textured papers that are printed onto with inks. Cutting things up and sticking them back together never looked better.
