Will Broome Live Art
I went to school in a pit town just outside Nottingham. I didn't like school all that much but I liked to draw on things.
I earned a place on the Foundation course at West Notts College, It was like an escape hatch. I ended up applying to study fashion design at St Martins.
A few years after graduating from the MA Ibegan to sell my drawings.
I have worked for Marc by Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Missoni, Hugo Boss Becks and Vans. I have designed a range of 'Will Broome for Top Shop' T-shirts and illustrated a dinner service for Wedgwood to celebrate their 250th anniversary.
I have exhibited in London and Paris and sold to private collectors in New York, Copenhagen, Paris & London among others. I've also been featured in POP magazine, Dazed and Confused, Wallpaper, I-D , The Guardian and WGSN
"I like the simple act of drawing, of making a mark. I can draw in a much more sophisticated style: I just choose to work like this"
" I'm inspired by lots of things. Normally it's stuff I see on Toilet walls and the street when I'm riding my bike. I still like the things I liked when I was eleven: AC/DC Black Sabbath, graphics from the '70's, Spiderman, stickers, the Incredible Hulk."
