To celebrate the publication of their latest limited edition postcard book illustrators Girls Who Draw cordially invite you to attend their Masquerade exhibition. The show includes a selection of screen prints, digital prints and original hand painted artwork from the book as well as new pieces also inspired by the Masquerade theme.
The exhibition line-up features both emerging and established female illustrators from around the UK. Each one has interpreted the theme in a different way so as well as masks there are theatrical characters, traditional folk costumes, animals in disguise and even camouflaged insects. The styles and techniques used to create the work on display are as varied as the content and range from intricately detailed drawings to multi-layered paintings, colourful print designs and bold digital illustrations.
Over the last few years Girls Who Draw has grown from a small group of illustrators to a larger network of contributors. They collaborate in order to publish a postcard book once a year and each new book is accompanied by an exhibition.
