A UK-based talent who enjoys using many different forms of mediums to create his work Oscar Mitchell-Heggs the artist and graphic designer of OMH London has previously exhibited his works in London at The 508 Kings Road Gallery in Chelsea alongside other famous illustrators including H.M. Bateman. Displaying a number of his works including character illustrations, graphic work and works using pen and water to create sublime photo realistic imagery.
Born in England and then living in Dubai from a young age the artist believes the time he spent in Dubai was a big part of his influence into art. Always with an interest in the traditional Arabic calligraphy and remembering a fellow pupil at school that would draw cartoons, Oscar wished that he could draw like him one day. Fast forward a few years and Oscar went onto studying at Hurtwood House College of Creative Arts where he took classes in Fine Art/Art, Textiles, Fashion and Media.
With great love for graphic design and illustration and combining the two, the British talent believes that people around him were his biggest influence in perusing his career as an artist. Especially a special person in his life, which was his grandmother who was a Couture designer who pushed Oscar to develop his techniques through drawing and using different mediums.
His artistic work and talent spans through paintings, graphic design work, editing film, painting in coffee, watercolors and illustration. “I have a creative eye and I can apply it to many different mediums, I take in everything around me and find ways to convert anything into a form of art”. In his spare time Oscar enjoys visiting galleries wherever he is in the world, “I like to see a piece in a gallery and envisage where the artist was mentally before he created this piece”. Coming up in the future for this young artist is his next exhibition which will be displayed at The Brick Lane Gallery in London in March 2015. Exhibiting his new works that focus on very fine detailed illustrations, each explaining a story.
