The artist herself – SOWA – is a young illustrator, now launching her creative career in the UK. She specialises in hand-drawn pencil and ink illustrations of a symbolic, surrealist and quirky nature, from creepy cartoon creatures and psychedelic Asian lovers to the expressive religious and cultural scenes.
This November will see the launch of SOWA’s first solo UK exhibition – “Religious Milk”. SOWA’s latest works, originating from the foundations and myths of catholic religion, will be on display from 24th November until 1st December at the 3 Blind Mice Bar in London.
The black & white works put the religious traditions in the spotlight, mixing and merging them with ideas from popular culture, political ideologies and the lives of artists long-gone. All of the artworks present intricate detailing of the pencil work, filling the paper with doves, clocks and musical notes, and on the other hand contrasting with stars of David, crosses and the religious milk flowing.
Starting at the 3 Blind Mice Bar, the works will then embark upon a London journey across a number of venues, to reach wide creative audiences of London art enthusiasts.
Everyone is invited to attend the exhibition, by RSVPing here.
