Graceland

Type: Painter, Illustrator
Location: London, UK
Services: Commissions, Brand Collaborations, Murals

Graceland is best known for brave, bold use of colour in her vibrant illustrations and paintings which depict the darker side of human nature. Her art visualizes self obsession and displays self questioning quotes.
She developed a love for art as a child, always favoring vivid use of colour. Her style is predominantly contemporary and humorous, but subtly influenced by the historical religious symbolism in Italian Renaissance and Flemish art.
Her overall subject matter examines human consumption. She explores scenes of how us as human beings, consume vices in life to feed our inner egos. The characters in her artwork depict the many types of emotions we feel and in turn the facades we display to the rest of the world.
Graceland is based in London, from her studio in the colourful area of Hackney Wick. She takes frequent trips to America, which she considers an important influence on her work.
