ALTERED STATES @ Saatchi gallery

Really excited to be part of this exhibition, which is opening this week at Saatchi gallery in London. For this occasion I prepared a few new paintings I’m super pleased with. Please message me if you’d like to attend the private view this Thursday.

Altered States

Altered States showcases works by eight urban contemporary artists based in the UK. The artists featured in Altered States are: D.A.N.T.E., David Shillinglaw, Florence Blanchard, Kid Acne, Lily Mixe, Skeleton Cardboard, Sr.X and Victoria Villasana. The exhibition has been curated by Olly Walker.

By its nature art concerns transition and transformation. Ideas and emotions transform from impulses to physical images. Substances are transformed when rendered on surfaces, liquids become solids and colours merge. Similarly, artists find themselves living within a society that is constantly changing and presenting them with new challenges and opportunities.

The UK is home to a community of diverse artists. Some were borne in the UK and others were drawn to it; but all continue to explore artistic ideas as the nation evolves. Altered States showcases the output of a selection of British-based urban contemporary artists working today.

MOFO festival // Hobart Tasmania

Painting by Florence Blanchard

IMG_4153_1200I spent the beginning of this year in Australia, painting walls in Melbourne & Hobart. I had an amazing time hanging out in the beautiful nature of Tasmania, such a great way to start the year. One of the murals I painted was in one of the venues of MOFO festival in Hobart. I also painted another mural with Kid Acne in the city center. I wish for more positive vibes like this for this year. A big thank you to Kira for organising everything, you’re the best!Painting by Florence BlanchardPainting by Florence BlanchardIMG_4029_1200IMG_1735_Florence_Blanchard_1200IMG_4208_1200IMG_4186_1200IMG_4199_1200IMG_3977_1200IMG_4003_1200IMG_1733_Florence_Blanchard_1200IMG_1557_1200
