Inventive Hand Crafted Art by Kyle Bean

Written by

 

Kyle Bean is an incredible young talent, specialising in hand crafted models, set design and art direction. Since graduating in 2009, Kyle has worked for a variety of international clients for a diverse range of projects including installations, window displays, editorial illustration and advertising.

Kyle’s work has been recognised by the prestigious Art Directors Club in New York and the International Design Biennial held throughout Europe. His work has been featured in a range of international art and design publications, praising him for both his conceptual thinking and craftsmanship. Kyle splits his time between working from his studio by the sea in Brighton and London where he often collaborates with photographers and directors. Kyle is represented by Blinkart.

What stands out most about Kyle’s work is his diverse range. While he has a clear gift for papercraft, the variety in materials used and the creativity in which he employs them is truly exceptional. Many of his pieces, especially those for magazine covers and editorials, are often cheeky, akin to visual puns.
