“Combining influences from abstract expressionism, British landscape painting, Japanese woodcuts, and graphic street art, Ashcroft integrates varied visual styles to generate a crossover between space, object and environment.”

There is something almost ‘comic book’ about some of London based Phil Ashcroft’s work and although it is in a sense abstract expressionism there is a deliberate pop flair about it and I like that. Abstract comic pop-expressionism.
