She only started spraying 4 years ago when she moved to London after finishing her bachelor degree in illustration in the SouthWest of England. Mostly self taught, she has been picking up a few tips and tricks from the guys, but has explored the use of cans on her own during live events and festivals.
Current work documents her interest for the urban art scene that has sparked a desire to work with spray paint. These outdoor paintings combine influences, looking at realistic portraiture and different ethnic cultures. Her studio work comes from an interest in a rising, Pop-surrealistic Movement, that demonstrates bold colours, rustic steam punk, symbolism and decorative elements.
Exhibition: 2 April - 30 April
Canvas Bar , 235 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HE.
Turning trash into treasure, Ian’s work is both engaging and enlightening. Influenced by his immediate surroundings, everyday life and the TV from which he reflects the reality of living in the 21st Century. Ian re-directs his twisted and joshing take on the world to create distorted characters, murals, alternative slogans, animations, sculptures, customised photographs plus anything from coffee cups to record sleeves.
A recent collaboration with Russell Brand, to promote his book Revolution, saw Ian’s artwork on the Village Underground’s wall in Shoreditch. A larger than life sized mural, jam-packed with blissful characters and hilarious, satirical slogans.
The exhibition's grand opening is going to be a blast!
The beer is free. Everybody is invited. See you there.
Launch Party: 2 April 2015, 7 - 9pm
Exhibition Runs: 3 - 25 April 2015

The exhibition focuses on the depiction of leading figures from the past and present who have somehow shaped the world in which we live. Alongside such revered icons as Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Abraham Lincoln, Hewett also portrays such infamous persona as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Osama bin Laden. Untitled presents these figures through a markedly honest, unbiased lens; any judgement on them is made by the viewer. Whilst the paintings are loaded and complex, Hewett does not prescribe his works with a political message, and this is reflected in the exhibition’s title.
Private View: Thursday 23rd April, 6-9pm
Exhibitions runs: 24rd April – 24th May 2015
