Raf Amato - 2020
Raf is a longtime watercolour artist, illustrator and graphic designer currently living in St Albans. He spent several years early in his career living and working in the region around Venice where he had two solo exhibitions of his watercolour work. Since returning to the UK he has worked as a design director, illustrator and graphic designer in London agencies. He has exhibited works in the Nude Tin Can Gallery in St Albans amongst others. His passion for painting in watercolour is inspired by the spontaneity of the medium and by the places visited and recorded both local and further afield. A bold use of colour and space informs his mainly landscape work.
