2022 Martin Shallenberger Artist-in-Residence Craig Black - Cheekwood
x icon Close

Craig Black is a Scottish visual artist who specializes in bespoke artwork, murals, and installations. Black believes in creating exciting and engaging visuals while maintaining originality across all his work. He is best known for applying “Acrylic Fusion,” a hand-poured painting technique he developed. The versatile analogue process of hand pouring layers of acrylic paint to create a unique and mesmerizing effect has brought Black the opportunity to collaborate with a wide range of international partners, from creating a one-of-a-kind football for the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), to transforming a collection of cognac glasses with Remy Martin and creating a custom frame for Ribble Cycles. Acrylic Fusion will be central in Black’s forthcoming works created at Cheekwood during his residency.
