Winston Duke is a London based artist, animator and photographer who graduated from London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London where he specialised in Digital Media Design.

The ‘Lifelongfiction’ GIF project was a result of a yearning to relearn the fundamentals of animation. His work usually involves themes such as space, time anda love of deep sea creatures. 

‘After Dark’, a long term photography project came about after several years of doing travel street photography, and it was through his introduction to the wonders of 35 mm film and film development, that he was able to land on a style that spoke most to his artistic vision.

Since graduating he has maintained a fruitful career path through Motion Design and has had the pleasure of working on some of the world’s most culturally significant brands. His personal work has also lead him complete works with the likes of Nike & Giphy.
