Illustrator Daniel Frost has a way with character and atmosphere that transports us to wherever he depicts. As an aside from his successful commercial commissions, his personal work is often inspired by his latest trip, and it was his gouache painted travelogue of Greenland that he came to speak about at Nicer Tuesdays.
Here, he takes us on an adventure to this “otherworldly” place, and tells us about how the freezing cold temperatures inhibited his process but actually gave the final works a sense of mystery and drama. He also describes how travelling to a place so alien to him was inspiring in a multitude of ways, from the different quality of light to the tonal landscapes, the Aurora Borealis and even the fluorescent colours of outdoor clothing.
