Louisa Foley & Thom Milson
11 March - 31 March 2016
Exhibit presents an exhibition of work by two talented Illustrators, who we think are super.
Louisa Foley graduated from Leeds college of Art studying printed textiles and surface pattern.
“My practice is heavily illustration based combining a number of different techniques including: Hand drawn illustrations, collage, Digital printing, Hand embellishments and embroidery. I love colour, surrealism, and typography these all play a large role in my work which is inspired by a mash up of 60’s graphics, pop art, punk, kitsch and feminism. This eclectic mix leads me to some strange places but definitely reflect my playful sense of humour. I like to make work that catches peoples eye and makes them laugh, i believe life is too short to be serious and beige and my work is a visual way of saying this, rather than being polite and asking to be seen it screams in your face ‘HELLO I HAVE ARRIVED’“.
Thom Milson is an illustrator based in Leeds. As a graduate of Leeds Beckett University, with a degree in Fine Art, Thom has gone on to work with a wide range of clients in a range of mediums – as well as pursuing regular personal passion projects, such as those seen in this exhibit. Working regularly in inks, printmaking, digital illustration and paper cuts, his work explores the relationship between handmade and digital process, creating a word that feels alien yet familiar.
