Bruce Mackay

BRUCE MACKAY is a visual artist known for his intricate, organic compositions. Using patterns inspired by order and chaos in nature he creates energy and depth with his graphic line work and limited palette. Drawing from a long list of inspirations varying between, botany, geography, science fiction, punk rock, anatomy, spirituality, and quantum entanglement, he has developed a personal visual language of symbolic objects and scenes to express themes of tension, motion, mortality, turmoil and serenity. Mackay currently works as a creative director and illustrator at Studio Muti, having worked as an art director, animator, illustrator and graphic designer over the past 11 years.
