INKCANDY was founded by London based graphic designer Dave Young. His prints combine a love of both film and design. Like most 80’s kids his first real memories of film are largely from watching videotapes. Growing up he had neighbour who ran a video shop out the back of a Ford Fiesta XR2. It would stop by every Friday night with an ever changing library of cinematic wonders.
His latest series Close Up is inspired by Sergio Leone’s extreme close ups of eyes. This shot has been used by countless auteurs to create iconic cinematic moments that burn into our subconscious. Dave plays with these moments, reinterpreting them through ideas found in both op art and pointillism, forcing us to look again.
