2019 #beyondwallslynn artist!
The 2019 Street Art Festival runs from July 22-Aug.3
In studio, Helen works with traditional techniques applying oil to canvas or linen with a palate knife and brush, and watercolor or pencil to paper, whilst co-existing in the urban mural scene, wielding a brush, roller, and masonry paint to create larger than life works on wall. Through these varying mediums, she explores and embraces paintings role and ability to sensitively discuss current issues and events. Fuelled by a visit to The Hayward Gallery in 2007 to see ‘The Painting of Modern Life’, her obsession with painting and photography and their relationship was formed. After receiving a first class Fine Art degree from Cardiff School of Art she went on to co-run a voluntary arts space / studios and gallery ’The Abacus’ in the centre of Cardiff as well as the Street Art festival, ‘Empty Walls’ for two years, submerging herself in a creatively fuelled environment, alongside maintaining her own practice.
Thanks to our supporters!
