Phil Ashcroft

Phil Ashcroft is a painter and graphic artist based in London. His formative years in the early 1990's as a student of illustration were spent first at Harrow College of Art, then at St Martins College of Art and Design, a time which coincided with the emergence of widespread digital communication and image manipulation, a direct influence on his artistic practice.

Since 2002, when he was invited to paint in Graffiti Meets Windows 1 in Osaka with the Scrawl Collective, he has collaborated on live-painting projects in galleries and alternative spaces including Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall in 2010 as part of No Soul for Sale, an exhibition celebrating Tate Modern’s 10th anniversary.  

Ashcroft was a finalist in the UK’s prestigious John Moores Painting Prize in 2014 and a finalist in the Celeste Art Prize in 2007. In 2005 he created original film poster artwork for the British Film Institute’s UK cinematic re-release of the original Godzilla (1954) film. 

His monograph Solar System Parameters, containing work from 2005-2013 and an essay by Paul Hobson, director Modern Art Oxford, was published by Gamma Proforma in 2013.
