Spencer Shakespeare is an incredible Gold Coast based artist making a big impact on the local art scene (you heard it here first!)

It's a lovely feeling when an artist's work comes along and has the ability to totally and wholeheartedly captivate you. When this happens you know it's something special and a piece you just need to look at and admire everyday. This happened to me when I first saw the beautiful and imaginative work of Gold Coast based artist Spencer Shakespeare.

Spencer's playful and beautiful work takes inspiration from the natural world and landscape around his home.  An earthy colour palette, with lots of greens, textures and pops of soft, beautiful colour create a magical story and dialogue in every piece. Graduating from Bournemouth College of Art + Design with a degree in design, specialising in Natural History Illustration gave Spencer the platform to define his style. 

His recent solo exhibition titled "Tallebudgera' at LMTD gallery space Southport represents a consistency in his art practice and was a sell out success. I am lucky enough to have brought one of Spencer's pieces from this exhibition and it's a piece I know will have a special place on my walls for years to come.

Spencer's work is regularly seen gracing the beautiful Brisbane interiors store Kira and Kira, but his pieces don't hang for long before they're snapped up. You can see more of his lastest work on his instagram here.

Keep your eye on Spencer, he is going to be big!
