Meet Tim Doyle, contemporary illustrator, print-maker and king of ‘nerd-cool’. Drawing inspiration from a life-long love of comic books and video games, Doyle creates prints of inimitable style that incorporate cultural icons - from the music industry to art-house film - into a graphic aesthetic like no other.
‘The Swan Song of Oren-Ishii’ takes cult film Kill Bill and creates a striking print, in the detailed, illustrative style of a graphic novel. In a palette of ice-grey and inky-blue, Doyle depicts Oren-Ishii, stood alone amongst Bonsai trees and falling snow flakes. The image has a gentle, haunting quality, evocative of the film, yet saturated with its own, artistic nuances. It’s a powerful snapshot, filled with painstaking detail, for a compelling piece of contemporary print-work.
