About Oliver Preston
Oliver grew up in London and the Cotswolds and from an early age developed a love of cartoons and caricature through the books of H M Bateman, Thelwell, Tintin and Charles Addams. As a child and at school Oliver drew extensively. He is completely self-taught His early cartoons were published in Punch Magazine, The Beano, The Dandy and The Spectator, and since 1995, Oliver has been the regular cartoonist for The Field Magazine.
His cartoons have also appeared in Cotswold Life, The Polo Magazine and Country Life amongst others, and he has contributed to The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Mail and The Independent newspapers.
With a keen eye for social observation, his cartoons are beautifully drawn with a very individual style. The situations are very close to people’s everyday lives, and there is often a splattering of languid lovelies, dilettantes and doting dogs. Oliver has developed a wide following, especially for his shooting and skiing cartoons, and drawings that depict the quirkiness of British town and country life.
He has held one man shows at The Fine Art Society in Bond Street (1999), The Addison Ross Gallery, London (1990), The Mall Galleries, London, (2014) and this October 2016, and regularly at the Gstaad Palace in Switzerland.
He has also produced fifteen books of his cartoons, of which many of the cartoons are available as limited edition prints. His latest book, "Raise Your Game: is now out.
Oliver returned to Gloucestershire in 1998 and over the next fifteen years, he has developed a loyal customer base, working for a diversity of clients, on caricature commissions, christmas cards, cartoon invitations, and much more.
