About Oscar

Oscar's Story
(yes, that's the mysterious Oscar Finch below :)

Oscar believes that ordinary people and objects are amazing and a little bit magical, just disguised in their commonness. That’s why he makes amazing tales and inventions that marvel at the everyday and imagine the extraordinary in the ordinary.

His imaginative work can colour and brighten the ordinary including walls, room, offices & the facade of buildings (any public space, really :)

But it's probably amiss for Oscar not to introduce himself...

"Oh, hello there. My name is Oscar Finch. You might recall seeing my work in a range of prominent publications. You see by day I work in an office, have three wonderful little children and a beautiful wife, but in the early hours each morning, I’m an inventor, storyteller and maker (kind of like today’s Leonardo Da Vinci / Roald Dahl) who likes to find the extraordinary hidden in ordinary people and objects.

You see, Oscar Finch is a mysterious, secret identity, kind of like Batman to Bruce Wayne (or Ellis Bell to Emily Bronte, or Banksy to … whoever Banksy is).

Where did the Oscar Finch’s journey begin? Well, ever since I was a small boy I loved the endless enchanted possibility of blank paper, pencils and paint (and school assignments about inventors and animals). I would draw and write and wonder with a frolicking imagination - leaping five times my height, owning an ordinary car that could secretly fly and controlling time. As the shadows of adulthood encroached however, I did that less and less (time I suppose has a way of dampening the imagination).

The nagging pull of pouring what I imagined onto paper, though was ever nagging like gravity. Soon a handful of time each morning became two handfuls and before long a handful of handfuls and before long, I saw my boyhood self again."

(Oh, and that's my imaginary making place below...)

Oscar 's Mission

Oscar mission is to change the world with a pencil, pens and beautiful paper so that his imaginative tales and creations can be found in rooms, offices, buses and wall facades in town and cities large and small - so people awe at the ordinary.

A billion people on earth would be nice :) A beloved collection of children’s books too (that Roald Dahl would be proud of). Oh, and a film trilogy...

But I’d love to start (if you don’t mind) with you today!

Frequently Asked Questions
What Others Are Asking...

These are the most common questions asked of Oscar.

Products

Why are your products so special?

Many products (including wall art and t-shirts) are made by combining stock art (you know, images you can buy on used on bad advertisements) to make pretty patterns that don't mean a lot.

Oscar’s works are original and interesting - all designed and crafted using his own hands onto real paper with his imagination, real pencils and ink. That’s what makes each piece like nothing else in the world.

What are the prints made of? Why are they such quality?

Each piece is printed onto the finest museum grade paper. Oscar chooses the Hahnemuhle brand because it feels and looks superb (if you’re interested it’s acid free and calcium carbonate buffered) plus it can last longer than 100 years!

The inking process is called giclée printing and is a high-quality way of getting ink onto the best paper.

Which size is right for me? A few helpful things to consider:

A4 is small and good for a small desk, kitchen or small wall like a corner.

A3 is medium and good for a larger desk, larger kitchen or moderate sized wall.

A2 a larger and really nice on a wall, behind a bed or desk, adorning a hallway or thoroughfare.

A1 a very large and a wonderful way to make an impact in a room, office, reception, thoroughfare or atrium. Pow.

Dimensions

A4 210 x 297 mm | 8.3 x 11.7 in
A3 297 x 420 mm | 11.7 x 16.5 in
A2 420 x 594 mm | 16.5 x 23.4 in
A1 594 x 841 mm | 23.4 x 33.1 in
