Starting at an early age, Willkay knew he wanted to be an artist, winning art competitions and eventually attending London’s Central Saint Martins and the London College of Communication. Passionate about art in all its capacities, the artist then set up ODDKINGDOM, a brand offering creative services to clients. Best known for his drawings in trademark pen on paper.
‘For the Love’ artwork encompasses art produced from an indigenous culture. In contrast to common place fine art pieces, this piece is primarily utilitarian and decorative rather than purely aesthetic. Using pen and pencil to create The heart made up of meticulously detailed roses with the non-conformist tendencies of self-taught, so-called outsider artists(falling within the Art Brut movement). Willkay likes to pride himself in his unconventional methods.
