Hannah Gilson (Above): A mixed media artist based in London, her work combines painting, screen printing, and drawing. While having a background in fine art, her work has naturally evolved into hand drawn and digital illustrations and engages with popular culture and aesthetics. She has a piece in the new collection at Anthropologie and has been commissioned for an editorial illustration by the Evening Standard Magazine.

Charmaine Chanakira (above): She uses modern expressionism mixed with her African culture to create abstract and less refined paintings. Identifying as a  BLACK/ ZIMBABWEAN/ MIGRANT/ WOMAN living in the UK forms the basis to her practice; as the artist claims: ‘I’m not just one thing, I am all and none.’ The work of Chanakira challenges the world in which she lives, engaging with concepts such as decolonization and social justice.

Lisa-Marie Price (above): Is an abstract painter from London who explores the connection between nature, people, and place. She uses natural pigments foraged both in urban and rural areas to create her methodical style using handmade watercolours. Her paintings are made from a connection with the land that she can never get from shop-bought paint.
