Nigel Howlett lives and works in London. He divides his time between his artwork, which this site showcases, set design and hanging out at Nan studios a photographic and creative studio which he co-founded in 2015.

Howlett’s graphite drawings depict hairy characters, sometimes dressed only in their underpants, acting out scenarios that reflect familiar social anxieties and conditions. Always humorous and sometimes sinister, common themes in the work include our obsession with technology and our relationship with social media.

Working as a set designer Howlett has been inspired by the contrast between real and false realities, trickery and illusion are subsequently re-occurring themes in his work.

His Set design clients include Channel 4, BBC, ITV, and Sky, brands include Issey Miyake and Nike. Please contact for commissions, exciting projects, involvement and all round merriment.
