The electric pattern contained within Tile, 2020 is rendered in ink, spray paint and varnish which produces a beautifully smooth surface and clearly defined line. A master of design, pattern and colour, Dominic Beattie creates work that from a distance appears perfectly ordered, and up close reveal the hand of the artist.
Dominic's work often crosses over with, and borrows from, the world of design and textiles. His exhibitions have combined modernist furniture and abstract, pattern-based paintings. Described as having an 'anti-digital aesthetic', Dominic uses non-traditional materials to achieve the character of his work.
He says of his work, "I tend to make things that approximate the modernist aesthetic in some way. I deliberately avoid trying to express any concepts, I work in a visual realm and I prefer the viewer to decide what they are looking at."
Education: Camberwell College of Art.

In 2018 Dominic curated Harder Edge II, Saatchi Gallery and The Hospital Club, and Kaleidoscope at Fold Gallery in 2016.
His work is in the collections of the Saatchi Gallery, Soho House and numerous private collections.
