Ashley Dann

To put it simply, I make a mess...and call it art! Before my creative endeavours, I was a student at Leicester culinary college, with the hopes of a bright future in this career. Unfortunately, it became quickly apparent that I was not the next chef Ramsey, leaving a younger me with only one skill left to make into a career, ART!

 

Despite my lack of formal tuition, I learned my craft mostly from books and YouTube videos, until I became an apprentice in a tattoo shop, where I was taught how to greatly improve at realistic drawing, giving me the necessary skills to begin my new life.

 

As I was slowly exposed to the beautiful street art of Leicester, my interests gradually grew towards the medium, leading to a new passion for this art form, acting as a glimmer of light and vibrancy among the harsh city landscapes. Very soon, nightly trips to underpasses and skateparks to create my visions became all the more common.
