Oscar Baldwin is an artist and independent animator from Northampton. What links his animation and art practice together is his ongoing theme of combining opposites together.
A great deal of Oscar’s work deals with the themes of nature v.s. technology and his last exhibition was themed around exactly that.
Oscar likes to mix modern cutting edge methods and styles with traditional draftsmanship skill to create remarcably original and engaging work that appeals to those with modern and/or traditional sensibilities.
In his animation work he combines traditional drawing and computer graphics, and uses seemingly lowbrow entertainment genres like action/ adventure and comedy as a vehicle to communicate philosophical and satirical ideas to a wide audience.
His philosophy of beauty in art is that in order for a piece of work to be beautiful it must perfectly balance the principles of control and spontaneity.
