FEATURED ARTISTS AND MAKERS
in an Italian-British illustrator based in Bristol. Her work is inspired by female and queer experiences, bodies, sexuality, and empowerment. She focuses on creating more realistic images of people, especially womxn and marginalised genders, reclaiming them from the limits of mainstream media. This presents itself through colourful, vibrant artwork with strong feminist and body positive ethics, with references to classical art, pop culture, and vintage photography.
Kim Piffy is an urban graphic artist and textile print designer. using a range of media, in combination with digital editing, she creates her own recognisable style.
She applies a passion for metaphysics with a love of neon colours and different textures.
Drawing inspiration from the camouflages & aposematisms found in the most peculiar flora & fauna, kim creates patterns and textiles for her clothing label “@iampiffy”
“The versatility of fabric allows me to easily share my creativity. The process out lives my own self expression; it is passed on to the next person and is elaborated on through their own movement and flow”
Whilst focusing on her clothing label, kim also creates mixed-media collage, murals, album art, logos and much more.
A surreal assemblage of materials and structures; each already containing their own histories, often personal to Price, are fastened together to propose a disabling and uncomfortable situation. She is interested in the semiotics of sculpture and objects. Concerned with the personal and wider social histories of materials and ready made objects, she creates a series of (auto)biographical sculptures . Price seeks to comment on the interchangeability of physical disability and mental illness. A kind of translation and mutuality that can aid in expression of experience.
She is curious about the point where art object meet design object and seeks to explore this in concept, tangibility and utility. Specifically relating to assistive furniture and equipment.
Being copies: altered and fragmented ‘casts’ of the real objects, their original responsibility is removed and often disabled.
Lisa Price graduated from The University Of The West Of England with a 1st Class Degree in Fine Art. Her studio practice is based in Lawrence Hill, Bristol.
