Wonderland favourite and rebel-illustrator Hattie Stewart has a new exhibition in Brighton starting today.
We love Hattie Stewart over here at Wonderland – which obviously hasn’t got anything to do with her scrawling all over our cover in her trademark style… She’s an East-London based illustrator who made a name for herself by revitalizing magazine covers (not just ours, but also Vogue, i-D, and Playboy) with tongue-in-cheek graphics that mock the earnest world of fashion with a distinctive retro edge. Since those magazines, Hattie has become one of the most in-demand illustrators in the world, working with the Oscars, Pepsi Max and MTV: kind of a big deal then.
Now she’s putting on a new exhibition that we’re super excited about called ‘Pattern, Shape, Fluidity, Versions’ at the renovated No Walls gallery in Brighton – always a space that encourages cutting edge talent and fosters up-and-comers.
It’s Hattie’s second solo show, following on from her sell-out debut, ‘Hello Cheeky’, and will feature 100 new illustrations by the artist that will both experiment and riff on established themes in her trademark bold style. The opening night is the 2nd October, so head along if you’re in Brighton and check out the tasters below.
