Craig Black is a Scottish Visual Artist best known for his ‘Acrylic Fusion’ technique. He specialises in bespoke artwork, murals, and installations, he believes in creating exciting and engaging visuals whilst maintaining originality across all of his work. Craig has won admirers on a global scale thanks to his signature expression, ‘Acrylic Fusion’, an incredibly versatile analogue process of hand pouring layers of acrylic paint to create a unique and mesmerising effect, loved by brands, art collectors, and NFT enthusiasts alike.
The versatility of acrylic fusion has meant that Craig has been able to collaborate with a wide range of partners – from match-day storytelling with UEFA, to transforming a collection of cognac glasses with Remy Martin and creating a one-of-a-kind custom frame for Ribble Cycles. Craig has also adapted his acrylic fusion process to work across a multitude of environments – from the tight control of the studio, where he refines and hones his pieces, to the excitement and buzz of the live setting, where audiences can see Craig interact with his artworks in real-time.
Craig picks his collaboration partners carefully, as he looks for projects that align with and complement his style and ethos – ensuring that no two partnerships are ever the same. Craig’s work has been celebrated and exhibited across the world: from London and New York to Sydney and Dubai.
