Illustrator and famous "doodle bomber" Hattie Stewart has just launched her new exhibition, which features a huge floor-based piece design that invites you to step inside, take a break from reality and see yourself reflected as part of the art.
On show at NOW Gallery at Greenwich Penisula, I Don't Have Time for This is the biggest artwork to date for Hattie, who has worked with everyone from Kylie Minogue (designing a music video for Sexercise) to Adidas and House of Holland and a host of publications including Vogue – all before turning 30 years old.
The new exhibition is like nothing NOW Gallery has shown before, with enormous floor graphics filling the space. Featuring Hattie’s usual bold icons, colours and visual stories, full of humour, intrigue and, in some cases, subversive messages – it highlights her passionate, colourful personality along with references to the psychedelic art of the '60s, the comic absurdity of hybrid post-modern classics such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit and her famous "doodle bombing" style.
Part homage and part satire this ongoing personal project has formed the basis for most of her commercial projects and endeavours, avoiding a more conventional illustrative style, her work is bold and experimental in application enabling her to break boundaries within the field of illustration.
The NOW Young Artist exhibition is commissioned by Kaia Charles for NOW Gallery.
