“More Than Meets the Eye” brings together three artists, whose style couldn’t be more diverse – from hand-crafted typography, pencil-drawn illustration to screen printing. However one thing that all three share is obsession with detail, which results in multi-layered artwork, inviting the viewer to linger and explore.
Dex is an award-winning graphic artist based in West London. His signature style is hand-drawing his art pieces digitally in Adobe Illustrator, using a Wacom pen. His limited edition art prints include the award-winning “Literary London Map” (voted one of London Design Week’s top 25 products). His “A Study In Sherlock” was selected by Threadless/Gap to be turned into a limited edition vintage T-shirt, which sold out across North America and Canada.
Lauren Mortimer is an East London-based illustrator, working primarily in pencil. Using her signature tongue-in-cheek approach, she often transforms her subjects by contrasting and reworking them. Drawing influences from nature and surrealism, she captures an air of curiosity and wonder, with her ability for tone, texture and realism.
London based French illustrator Lucille Clerc gained world’s attention as the author of the “Break One, Thousand Will Rise” simple yet powerful illustration in response to Charlie Hebdo shooting. However at “More Than Meets the Eye” she will showcase some of her technically most exquisite work – screen prints that are created drawing the layers of illustration straight onto tracing paper before exposing onto screens. This technique makes each print unique rather than a reproduction of the original.
