Maxwell is an artist with a 'passion for fashion', inspired by icons and muses of the catwalk and the silver screen. Glamour, celebrity and beauty ooze from his work, which is influenced by avid reading of Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar throughout the decades. His talent is nourished by observing celebrated fashion designers such as Tom Ford, Coco Chanel, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, and stars of Hollywood’s heyday such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly.
Maxwell draws great inspiration from the painters and artists that, like him, celebrate fashion in their work, ranging from Tissot, John Singer Sargent and Toulouse Lautrec to those more modern masters such as René Gruau, Bob Peak, Kenneth Paul Block and David Downton.
As a watercolour artist, Maxwell works traditionally and then embraces digital technology to enhance each piece.
These beautiful pieces for A Shade Wilder will channel the essence of Hollywood’s screen goddesses and a contemporary level of high glamour into your living or working space.
