Tez Humphreys lives in and works from his cluttered studio in the better half of Leeds, England, where — in his mixed-media collages and graphic illustrations — he scours for beauty in imperfections. Humphreys’ work has appeared in national and international publications such as Dazed & Confused, Computer Arts magazine, Esquire, and Anthem, among others. Though ostensibly a newbie in the world of commercial illustration at the prime old age of 23, he asserts that nothing will hinder him from realizing his ambitions in his chosen field. Augmenting Humphreys’ illustration work is a career at an upbeat advertising agency, where he absorbs valuable lessons in methods of deliverance and concept-building. He is currently working on various editorial commissions, and by night, produces large-scale handcrafted illustrations onto canvas for upcoming solo exhibitions in the UK and Europe.
