Sam Spratt Makes His Gilded 1x Debut

1xRUN Thru Interview
Gilded by Sam Spratt

1xRUN: Can you tell us a little bit about the original piece? How long did the piece take?   
Sam Spratt: The original piece was painted digitally with a Wacom Cintiq 24HD from scratch. I wanted to draw something shiny, so I did. That’s all there is to it.  It took roughly 18 hours.

1xRun: What is unique about this piece? Why should people buy this print?    
Sam Spratt: It’s extremely shiny-looking. It’s really rather fetching. How fetching? Well, Industrial Light & Magic owns one, so… a considerable amount.

1xRun: Describe this print in one gut reaction word.     
Sam Spratt:  Shiny.

About the Artist

Location: New York, New York

Sam is a 25 year-old New York-based artist who graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010 with a BFA in illustration. He immediately began work as Gawker Media's first staffed illustrator where, over the course of 9 months, he created hundreds of on-demand illustrations and editorial packages, bringing a little bit of art to tech-journalism.

Since then, celebrities and corporations worldwide now come to Sam for their creative needs. His work and clients range from magazine covers for Game Informer, editorial illustrations for MSNBC, promotional and advertising imagery for the Angry Birds franchise, FX Network, Cinemax, Bioware, and Tomb Raider, conceptual art for the game industry, advertising billboards for National Geographic Channel,merchandise for Warner Bros., cover art and branding for the music industry with labels and artists like EMI and Miike Snow, Album covers for Janelle Monáe, movie posters for Sundance winning Best Documentaries, as well as personally commissioned artwork and covers for Actor/Rapper, Donald Glover (Childish Gambino), private portraiture for Fortune 500 CEOs, medical illustrations for The American Association of Cancer Research, illustrations for some of the world's most renowned photographers--including a 55 foot long painting on a tour bus, with book covers, websites, logos, and everything in between.

His work has caught the attention of the public but also critics and mainstream publications with interviews in outlets such as PBS, ImagineFX, Print Magazine, Complex, NME, Pitchfork, Maxim, The Daily Dot, and MTV. His technique is built off of classical oil-painting training and translated to the fast-paced digital world.
