Mixed Media, Digital Media and Mark Making Artist

Gordon Brown aka Urban Punkz, is a Scottish artist and designer from Prestwick, Scotland. Known for his depictions of strong women, utilising a mixture of various media including photography, ink marks, tags, graffiti, spray paint and textures. He explores themes relating to female emancipation and empowerment.

Following Gordon's Art and Design course at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, he explored most of Europe and East Asia in his early twenties. During that time Gordon was employed to design luxurious treehouses for affluent clients globally. His spare time was spent drawing and painting using the influences he discovered whilst travelling through Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

With a keen eye for detail, Gordon has developed a unique aesthetic style over the years, moving away from traditional oil painting techniques to fusing mixed media, digital media and mark making.

Gordon states “People think graffiti and tags on walls make a town look dirty, bringing the place down. I find something quite beautiful about them and incorporate them into my work.”
