Lincoln Lightfoot is a well established artist that has built up an excellent reputation across Yorkshire and the North East. Lightfoot’s artwork explores surreal concepts reminiscent of 1950’s-60s B-Movie Poster Art. The artwork depicts unusual happenings with large beasts, staged in local, well-known settings. Inspired by iconic architecture and the absurdity of science fiction comedy disaster film the artwork offers a Monty Python style of escapism from everyday problems. The imagery taps into the present condition of fear that our news media and politicians perpetuate in a post Covid-19 world. Lightfoot's paintings aim to parody that of religious apocalyptic scenes circa 1800 such as those of John Martin whilst his story book illustrations explore detailed pen work and bright block colour.
