A selection of recent work by Vancouver-based artist Kyle Scott. Working as an illustrator and a background painter for animation means time for personal work is precious, serving to counterbalance the hectic production-focused work of the studio. In fact, Scott’s process is centred around being relaxed and finding a rhythm that is uncomplicated but still challenging enough to keep him engaged. This meditative sense of calm is reflected in the work itself, as he explains further:
“The subject matter is familiar, inspired by observations I make while walking around my neighbourhood. Indulging in this practice has given me an appreciation for the overlooked simplicity of day-to-day life, and how quickly it changes.”
