illustrator | b.1992 | london | edey_

Charlotte Edey is an artist & illustrator working across print and tapestry. Softly surreal, her work explores identity and the politics of space within feminine and unnatural scenes. Touching on modernist architecture and spiritualism, the spaces are punctuated with organic symbolism and miniature women of colour. The use of scale explores the power of creating and occupying space.

Following her Foundation year at Chelsea School of Art in 2011, her work has been exhibited at Flowers Gallery, TJ Boulting & The Arnolfini alongside galleries across the USA, Russia and Europe. Charlotte was selected for the Artist of The Day 2018 exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street. Her work has been featured in Creative Review, Vanity Fair, It’s Nice That, Dazed, AnOther Magazine & more.

Selected clients include New York Times, Miu Miu, Penguin Random House, The Guardian, BBC News, BBC World Service, Gal-dem, Monica Vinader, Rimowa, Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, Little White Lies & The Church of London, Art on a Postcard & more. See more here.
