Owen Gildersleeve is an artist based in London who specialises in hand crafted illustration, set design and art direction. I have worked as an assistant for Owen since late 2016. During this time I have helped on a variety of editorial, commercial, narrative and installation projects.

Some of the most notable projects include the life sized paper sculpture of the Star Wars droid, K-2SO and the window display for Lush's flagship store on Oxford Street. Both projects were completed in collaboration with Thomas Forsyth and feature 3D printed moving elements. 

Here are a selection of images from some of the projects that I’ve worked on.
