Bruce Mackay was born in 1986. He works as a visual artist in Cape Town, South Africa. His work varies between, illustration, graphic design and fine art. He specializes in tactile, hand crafted typography and illustration, likes making his own typefaces, drawing with a dip pen and dodgy home-made prints.
His work is inspired by hypochondria, vices, resurrections, X-ray vision, old things he finds in his dad’s garage, loose teeth, nostalgia, contagious diseases, drowning and horses. He tries as best he can to create the tension he finds in controlling or rebelling against his compulsion for balance and order.
