PAINT | DESIGN | WRITE | DIRECT
Working out of Leeds, I'm a multi-disciplinary human man, originally from Bangor, Northern Ireland.
Pop Art, Wildstyle Graffiti and Neo-Expressionism are all influences on my designs and artworks which I create on computer and canvas. A huge love of comedy, the surreal, and daily existence are all themes of my work. I try to be colourful and engaging, yet oblique enough to keep people guessing.
A graduate of Art and Design from the University of Ulster and then Leeds Beckett University, I grabbed a Masters in screenwriting from the National Film School, Dublin. I co-wrote the acclaimed animated short film, ‘The Boy in the Bubble’ starring Alan Rickman, which won a number of international awards. A pilot episode of an original kids TV show for Cartoon Network followed, and I continue to pursue projects across every genre of the written word.
I've lived and worked in Nashville, Tennessee, Tel Aviv, Israel, Dublin, Ireland and Riga, Latvia over the past decade. I'm a commissioned artist and work as a freelance designer of logos, branding, T-shirts, posters and album covers. I've also worked in music by directing a number of low budget videos, a feature length avant-garde art film with an original score, and several published songs with supremely talented musicians.
I'll be selling prints, original artworks and other good stuff, plus keeping a blog of what I'm up to. If you dig what I do, please drop me a line. I'd love to see if we can work together.
THINK I'M RIGHT FOR THE JOB?
Get in touch.
I've written songs for pre-school animation, and lyrics for a band performing at the prestigious Molde Jazz Festival in Norway. Stories for an independent zine in London which ran beside some of the biggest names in contemporary art, and a feature article for the infamous 'Bizarre' magazine. Voice-over scripts for travel, cooking and makeover shows on RTE and TV3 in Ireland. There was even a guided tour scripted for the Dublin Waxworks museum. Comedy, drama, kids TV, short films, features, website copy... I can write about anything because I've got the experience to prove it.
I've directed music videos on no-budget, lo-budget and hope to make the step up to the next level. I've a GH4, Canon DSLR, GoPro Hero4, all manner of kit and the Adobe Suite of programs on iMac and Macbook Pro. I draw and paint and design and I might just be the person you've been looking for.
I can do the job with style, on budget and on time because well... Kane Can.
