I am a freelance Illustrator and Street Artist who goes by the art name of SPZero76.
‘SP Zero76’ is a versatile freelance illustrator and Street artist based in Bristol. Originally from South Yorkshire I moved to Bristol in 1996 where I received my degree in Illustration at the University of the West of England.

I have been working steadily as a freelancer for a number of years. Most recently I have worked alongside Mambo and Free Spirit, creating wall art in their stores. I have regular work creating signs, canvases and murals for bars, clubs, hairdressers and shops around the country, including promotional work with Red Bull and Soulful Creative.

I have a varied portfolio, which includes album covers, flyers, computer game art, children’s trading cards and t-shirt designs for GoGo Dojo, Dirty Old Town, SP:UK, Bakers Dozen NYC and Treacle Clothing.

This past year has seen SPZero76 producing live art at festivals and club nights. I was also part of the winning Secret Wars team at Upfest 2011, Europe’s largest street art festival, alongside Squirl and Loch Ness.

Over the past year SPZero76 has had successful exhibitions at the Upfest Gallery and Weapon of Choice Gallery and I have been involved in The Wow! Gorilla project for Bristol Zoo’s 175th Anniversary, the Swans of Wells and The Kalis Alliance Hello My Name Is book project as well as creating the very popular Collaberation Nation project which features almost a hundred artists.

My art has been featured in a number of publications including Digital Artist magazine, It’s a Trap, and We Take Control
