Bert Heaney Mckinnell
Bert McKinell’s artistic practice combines skills drawn from life drawing classes and anatomical animation studies. His primary subject matter is the human form. He perfects his figures and then and develops them into characters within his own fantasy worlds, using a range of mediums from graphite, pen and ink to oil pastels.
Sometimes Bert’s draughtsmanship skills are also applied to animals and inanimate objects, but in all cases accuracy of subject is of the upmost importance. He will create studies of his subject and meticulously reworked them until they are absolutely perfect.
Bert’s recent work has been combining his love of Manga drawings styles with written text. Inspired by Japanese, Chinese and Korean script he has created his own characters blending several ideas together.
Bert McKinnell is a resident artist at ActionSpace’s Cockpit Arts studio.
