MEMBER: Luke Prest - Artist

Artist and Illustrator based in Barlow, NE Derbyshire.

Born in Sheffield as a child of the 80′s. I was raised and educated just over the border in North East Derbyshire.

For the past 10 years I’ve worked in Architecture. By trade, I’m an Architectural Visualiser. The ‘Artists Impressions’ you see in newspapers and outside development sites – I do them.

Art was always my favourite subject at school. I loved doodling things and sticking stuff together. I took A-Level art but failed it with flying colours – my art teacher was a bit of a snobby type who really put me off. I wanted to be a cartoonist and paint silly stuff which wasn’t covered on the syllabus!

At that point I gave up art in the traditional sense and moved into technical drawing.

In 2011 we moved house. Faced with bare walls and little money to buy any proper art I decided to have a bash at something myself.? I put the resulting images out on social media sites and set off on an adventure to become an artist.

Since then things have snowballed at an overwhelming pace. I’ve been profiled in several newspapers, been interviewed on live radio, sold works to The Duke of Devonshire, international football and cricket stars and have and been commissioned by Sheffield United FC and legendary nightclub The Leadmill amongst many private individuals and business’.
