Patrick Macaulay




Artist Statement

"My work is handcrafted and predominantly related to letterforms. It is heavily influenced by street art, faded lettering on old buildings and worn or damaged signage and street advertising. I often use reclaimed timber as my canvas adding rusted metal, wire mesh, hessian, corrugated paper, concrete and found objects to create an assemblage. Social and political commentary and concern for the environment are at the core of my current work."



Artist Biography

Patrick Macaulay's love of typography stems from pre-digital days of Letterpress printing when he worked as a Compositor setting metal type on a printer's chase and assembling text and illustrations for printing. He's had a number of solo exhibitions in Manchester city centre, exhibited in art galleries in Leeds, Oxford, Stockport and Clitheroe and sold to USA and throughout the UK.
