Sculpture Description

Bruce Parker grew up in the North East watching way too many films and cartoons, whilst drawing all of his favourites characters from those films and cartoons. Later he studied Animation & Illustration at college, before embarking on an illustrative art career. He describes his style as chaotic, euphoric, light-hearted and nostalgic littered with occasional familiar characters, objects and products past and present. ‘Doodle’ is covered in bold doodles and hidden objects, many of which symbolise covering up, hiding and protecting.
