A freelance artist and illustrator born, raised and based in Islington, North London.

Dean Waite attended Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design, part of the University of the Arts London where he completed his Diploma in Foundation Studies before graduating with BA Honours in Graphic Design. Although completing his degree in Graphic Design, illustration has always been paramount to his work.

Dean Waite revels in his London upbringing. Growing up in an environment with contrasting cultures and surroundings has greatly influenced his style of art and the way he expresses his creativity. His inspiration comes from what he sees around him. The mix of subject matters such as the modern and traditional, urban symbolism, sex, race and cultural difference, all create his realistic and highly detailed works. His imagination is illustrated through the use of a hand drawn, photorealist illustrative style using biro and spray paint as his primary mediums.
