About Buster Fisher
Born in Nottingham in 1982, Buster always felt drawn to nature, wildlife and spirituality. By combining these loves with his natural talent for drawing and painting, he creates stunning, original artworks.
Buster studied at Lincoln University and completed a Ba Hons in Illustration with 1st class honours. He was always the last student in the studio, working on something new and magical, for he loved nothing more than to create and submerge himself in his work.
“I have always enjoyed the way art has had the ability to transport me to another world; How reality unfolds as I get lost in the painting, and how it ever so slightly changes my perceptions thereafter”.
Buster follows his intuition whilst painting and lets his heart and his paintbrush guide the way. His art has been considered to be anthroposophical in nature and he seems to capture the very soul of the subject he paints.
Through difficult times, Buster has always been able to turn to painting as a creative outlet. It was through his love of art that he discovered that only he could influence his own feelings.
“I have always looked to art as a means to explore and express my feelings of the world around me and within me. There was a long period when I was depressed and suffered with severe anxiety, my artwork was equally as dark. I found that it fed more of that same energy, which only led me to deeper unhappiness. This impacted to a turning point, after depression was at its deepest, where I came to realise that I could choose what I fed myself. In a journey to heal myself, I chose to nurture the love within me. I chose to paint the subject that always made me feel ‘love’, animals. I felt I needed to keep it that simple of a choice.
I often prefer animals to the complexity of humans. Seeking refuge in the comfort that animals give, I saw how free from the burden of the conceptualised mind they are, how naturally in tune with nature and all there is. Often my work reflects a spiritual narrative, I am always looking to discover that deeper dimension within me, that I know is love. When I paint, I aim to share that to others, so that they too, might relate, and find that same space of loving truth within them.”
Through his art, Buster projects love with every brushstroke to the rest of the world. His paintings reflect that love and joy and Buster hopes that through his art, he can inspire others to be more loving to one another, to all creatures and to our planet.
Buster currently works from his studio in Nottingham City Centre where he creates his abstract, contemporary animal portraits. He has gained recognition and a large online following which grows on a daily basis and now has artworks in client’s homes and businesses both nationally and around the world.
