:: COMMISSIONS & CONTACT :: [email protected]

Charlotte Edey is an artist & illustrator working across print, tapestries and ceramics. Softly surreal, identity and utopia are explored within fluidly feminine and impossible spaces. Drawing from modernist architecture, afrofuturist themes and arid landscapes, the spaces are punctuated with organic symbolism and miniature figures. This use of scale explores the power of creating and occupying a space of one’s own.

Following her Foundation year at Chelsea School of Art in 2011, her work has been exhibited across the UK at venues including Flowers Gallery Cork Street, TJ Boulting & The Arnolfini alongside galleries across the USA, Russia and Europe. Charlotte was showcased as part of the Great Women Artists: Women on Instagram exhibition at Mother London and selected for the Artist of The Day 2018 exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Mayfair. Her work has been featured in Creative Review, Vanity Fair, It’s Nice That, i-D magazine, Dazed, AnOther Magazine, Country&Townhouse, Hunger and London Evening Standard.
