Nathan Evans Illustration

UK based Illustrator and Mural Artist specialising in hand lettering, with over a decade of experience painting walls…

Nathan Evans is a UK based Illustrator, Artist and Graphic Designer specialising in hand-drawn and hand-painted lettering.

I focus on the precision execution of hand-drawn line work and intricate patterns to develop stunning, eye-catching designs that are filled with  detail. These designs are then developed and coloured digitally, allowing them to be used for a multitude of both print and digital usages.

These refined skills allow me to produce multi-layered images that are rich in content and supported by vibrant colour palettes, providing clients with a unique and eye-catching quality, specific to their project requirements.

With over a decade of experience painting walls, I can also apply my distinct illustrative style to larger scale projects, utilising the mural skills I have worked hard to develop over the years.

I have experience working on an array of commissioned projects within the creative industry for an eclectic selection of clients. This ranges from high-street brands and agencies, to independent businesses, city councils and business improvement districts.

Nathan responded to the brief effectively and quickly. The design, colour palette and vibe is just right. Nathan makes the whole process of commissioning illustration straightforward and fun.

France-Leigh Hadrysiak

We commissioned Nathan to reimagine the front of our four artist studios and he didn’t disappoint – the results have transformed the face of the studios through a stylish, colourful and impactful design. We love the mural!

Daniel Crow

He is the type of artist who always delivers creatively imaginative and carefully crafted projects in a thoughtful way – a pleasure to work and collaborate with.

Kate Maple

Nathan is able to take a brief of any description and efficiently deliver pieces of creative artwork well beyond what your expectations might be. I can’t recommend Nathan highly enough, we have had the pleasures to collaborate on a number of projects and quite frankly I cannot wait to work on another creative endeavour with him!
