Dylan Cotton. (Born 1969) is an English painter and mural artist currently working from his studio in North Cornwall. UK

My practice makes good use of technology at almost every stage, it's a great tool for the augmentation of my creative output. This is a collaboration that brings a randomness and a level of complexity I'd unlikely to be able to achieve without the technology. Much of my current research is centred around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the role it can have in art. I think it's early days, but the technology looks like it will help artists deliver extraordinary new inspirations and methods of expression.

I paint mainly with oils on canvas, embracing excess with large high-colour maximalist images. I draw energy from the human achievements I see now and those I envisage for the future. I describe my work as an ungoverned composite of influences with a glow of Neo-Futurism edging into the foreground. The images I create contain no lies or exaggerations, it's the complete absence of any reality that I hope makes my work truthful. I am not a political/social artist but I'm drawn to the idea of the future and our safe transition into it.

Favourite Artists:
Mario Klingemann, Anna Ridler, Howard Hodgkin, Zaha Hadid, Mark Rothko, Vicken Parsons, David Hockney, Paul Nash, JMW Turner, Paul Cezanne, Will Cotton, Basil Blackshaw

Artistic Style:
Abstract, influenced by Cubism and Surrealism, with more than a hint of Neo-Futurism ever-present. Architecture and place also play an essential role in augmenting narrative and aesthetic substance.

As well as his on-going studio work Dylan is currently studying Fine Art (BA) at the prestigious University of Plymouth, UK.
