Duncan Osborne's successful career as a professional artist has spanned over 40 years. He studied at Manchester Art college in the 70's and has worked as a Designer/Illustrator in the Medical, Educational and Commercial sectors.
- The technique that Duncan specialises in is pointillism. Drawing thousands of dots in ink allows the flexibility to create intricate surfaces and textures in a variety of subtle tones, which would normally only be possible by using pencil or paint. By varying tonal values he creates a sculptured three dimensional presence to his subjects.
- His art is figurative and has been influenced by artists such as Escher, David Shepherd, Atkinson Grimshaw and admires the pointillist work of Pissarro.
- In the way that photographic grain can reproduce any image or material, Duncan varies the spacing of dots to render surfaces and textures like a living camera. He loves detail and texture finding inspiration in Industrial Scenes and Nature.
