Artist Furmie


Neon Angel - A homage to my homeland. Although the statue in real life appears a rusty red, to me it signals the warmth of my family calling me home.

Furmie’s art is rooted in the Pop Culture that’s sustained him since childhood.

Born in the North East of England, he’s a child of the 70s & 80s, with a penchant for sneakers, Godzilla and excessive amounts of neon. Straight out of art college he was designing record sleeves for the likes of Depeche Mode and The Cure, before being led astray by the club scene in the 90s - where he worked alongside Carl Cox and Danny Rampling. His next territory was to applying his skills to award-winning campaigns for Video Games and Movies.

Bella Di Giro A visual metaphor for the beauty of Italy. A place I’ve visited many times and continue to fall in love with - especially when cycling the Giro D’Italia mountain routes.

Profoundly inspired by the likes of Warhol, Haring and Kusuma he calls his style the ‘Furmie Squiggle’ and uses it to bring new life to familiar icons. He’s now selling prints online and taking on bespoke commissions.

Stay Calm A visual commentary on one’s ability to appear calm and in control even in the most distressing of situations.
