My name is Parys Gardener and I’m an award-winning contemporary digital illustrator based in Bristol, UK.

My style of work is most easily described as pop art with a modern edge.

During my time at University, I developed a passion for communicating theories surrounding identity and culture and will often take inspiration from my background and family history. As you’ll find, I thoroughly enjoy working with colour, tone and pattern across digital processes. My work aims to highlight the voices and narratives of people from a diverse range of social and economic backgrounds through the perspective of my own story and experiences brightly and engagingly.

I am The Precious Lifestyle Awards Visual Artist of the Year 2019 and have been nominated for Young Entrepreneur 2019 by the 5th annual Rise Awards.

I have also been named as one of Bristols 24 Most Influential Bristolians Under 24: 2018 as well as HuffPost UK Top Ten pieces of art and photography on the theme of black culture in the UK.

My work has featured regularly in gal-dem magazine and various online features. I have received several commissions from brands such as Nike, BBC Stories, Footlocker and Scoop magazine. I have also worked as co-creator for sexual health platform Kayleigh Daniels Dated.

You can find out more about my practice in my interview with The Creative Corner here or Journals of Dami here.
