New School Lounge Pop
Drawing inspiration from icons of our time, Bowman’s work provides personality to contemporary pop culture. He boldly explores the humour in today’s society and its over-saturation with idolization, the media & consumerism. The recycled, retro feel of Bowman’s work comes from his use of discarded, common-place items – old mirrors, windows, doors – as his canvas. New School Lounge Pop, is the manifestation of Bowman’s playful perception of reality.
His experience began with a formal education in fine arts at Sheridan College (Classical Animation) & has continued to grow as he has established himself as an ascending Toronto artist participating in events such as Virgin Thread Market, Fashion Cares, Nuit Blanche & curating The Officially Unofficial Fan Art Show & Bill Murray Day which donates to MS Society of Canada via FUMS.
In addition to his personal pieces, Bowman has expanded his artistic experiences with his involvement in animated productions as well as being a Commercial/Film storyboard artist since 2007. He strengthened his love of film through Producing, Directing, & Editing music videos & running the BTV (Billy Talent Vision) web series (2015 – 2018).
Bowman presently spends his time designing album artwork, Logo & Label graphic design for local businesses while continuing to create pop culture mashups illustrations/Glass Paintings & making his artwork available to the global market.
