Team LCD


Iain G. Baldwin

Airbrush Artist

Iain grew up in the small seaside town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, where there was always the annual influence of bikers and scooter's riding about the town showing off their custom paint work and airbrush detail designs. Watching in awe motorcycle legends, such as Barry Sheene and other amazing greats such as Joey Dunlop race at Oliver's Mount, Iain would spend hours and hours looking at the different bikes parked up outside, and was influenced by some of the amazing artwork on display. The UK Custom Paint & Airbrush, Grafitti scene was becoming massive and fuelled the start of Iain's interest into airbrush and custom paint & Grafitti art.

At a young age Iain found himself becoming involved in grafitti art and was painting/spraying art for small projects. Then, after spending many years travelling seeing great art and custom paint from all aspects, Iain realised that he wanted to put his talent and love of art to good use. Liquid Colour Design was born!

Iain has been afforded great training opportunities such as being shown some of the many different techniques of airbrushing and custom painting from top European Airbrush and Custom Painters such as the World Famous Dru Blair.
