David Foldvari

'A man as distinctive in voice as in technique, David Foldvari has forged a name for himself as one of the very finest illustrators currently working in the UK. He is utterly unapologetic in his singularly scathing and humorous vision, yet in constant demand by numerous impressively high-profile commissioners.' - http://crackmagazine.net/art/david-foldvari/

Foldvari has been a favourite of mine for a while now, I watch his stuff closely for the fantastic use of black and white lines in his work. He grew up in Hungary and moved at 12 to Europe. His work has influences from both regions, as well as things in life that have troubled him; he says it's a way of dealing with the issues.
Foldvari studied at two universities where he says he didn't particularly stand out as a student but has recieved commissions from clients like The Observer and editorial work for columnist Charlie Brooker, in The Guardian, recently he has produced work for and been interviewed for Crack Magazine.
