Graham Watson (b1974) is a Kendal based artist originally from the North-East of England. In recent years Graham has employed collage in his work to produce visually striking artwork influenced by Surrealism and pop culture. His latest work explores both the theme of ‘growth’ and also notions and perceptions of ‘artistic skill’ using drawing and abstract expressionism in his collages.
Graham’s collage ‘Hold Back the Night’ was used for the cover of the double live album of the same name by the Mercury Prize nominated Manchester band ‘I Am Kloot’.
