Guy Nicholas Challenger AKA Rob’s Birdhouse creates colourful photographic character collages using photoshop and a graphics tablet. They also make sculptures of their characters and brooches. Drawing influence from film, music, abstraction and the circus Guy aims to portray a sense of fun throughout their work. They currently study Ba Illustration at UWTSD Swansea.
At the age of 27 and with a head full of ideas they have made the decision to plummet headfirst into the world of art and hope somewhere they’ll fit! As an individual with bipolar art has become a powerful source of self-expression and solace. Body dysphoria plays a big part in their work and characters often feature clown-like expressions with bold make up as part of this. Guy playfully experiments with new ways to generate their artwork and has a loose childlike style.
