Oli Mumby | United Kingdom
Oli Mumby is a UK based contemporary artist specializing in landscapes and representations/interpretations of the natural world. His work is ‘about’ rather than ‘of’ the natural landscape, each piece begins with an idea stimulated by a drawing or photograph. The organic process develops from observation to the final semi-abstract aesthetic of his compositions. Oli’s connection to the captivating scenes of Derbyshire and the Peaks runs deep enough to attract him away from his London-based advertising job to his current countryside residence. Oli enjoys the direct physicality of pastels; using distinctive colors to build layers often in collage using pastels worked into paper.
