Guest Bio

Owen Gildersleeve is a artist based in London specialising in handcrafted illustration, 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 and regular collaborator Thomas Forsyth were behind the creation of last years life-size paper sculpture of Iron Man. The duo are excited to return this year to reveal their latest sculptural conception, which will be pieced together live over the course of the event.
