Meet the Women Who Are on Top of the (Art) World

International Women's Day has returned! What better way to celebrate than by showing off our finest female talent. Even though we are now in 2019, there can be an imbalance between us. Some industries still treat women like second class citizens. Artrepublic couldn't disagree with this more. This is why we are dedicating this blog post to all the fabulous women we work with!

LOUISE MCNAUGHT

King of a Fading Empire, A Star is Born and Legend by Louise McNaught

Louise McNaught became a professional artist whilst doing a Degree in Fine Art. Her distinctive use of bright colour, fading upward drips shows her obvious love of nature. She has international representation and as of 2018 is also a published Author. Her artwork has also been featured at art fairs in Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels and all over the UK.

Recently, McNaught has been using her voice and talent to educate people about all the beautiful animals that are becoming endangered. Her book 'Survival' strongly highlights how many animals are being lost using powerful imagery.

SARA POPE

Love Life Listen, Attitude and Electric By Sara Pope

Bold, seductive paintings of voluptuous lips is what contemporary artist, Sara Pope is known for. Pope had a successful career in the fashion industry (as a shoe designer for brands such as Paul Smith), and also work in magazines as a designer and art director. This is where Sara draws her inspiration from. She aims to capture the glamour and seductive power conveyed by the lips and mouth.

24 galleries in the UK and internationally currently represent her. She has also completed collaborations with BareMinerals makeup, PIAS music label and Saatchi&Saatchi.

MARIA RIVANS

Camille, Subdiego and Natural Highs I By Maria Rivans

Maria Rivans is a contemporary British artist, known for her scrapbook-style collage aesthetic. A mash-up of Surrealism meets Pop-Art, Rivans’s work re-appropriates vintage ephemera to create dreamy realms. This transports the viewer into fantastical worlds of the imaginary. Each one suffused with vivid colour, arresting imagery, intricate detail, and finished with a dusting of subtle humour.

Maria works from her studio in Brighton: a kooky building, purpose built as a small cinema in 1911. She exhibits work throughout the UK as well as internationally. These spaces include Hong Kong, New York and across Europe. In 2017 and 2018, her work featured in The Times newspaper. As well as this, in 2018, the Royal Academy’s 250th Summer Exhibition selected her film Still ‘Understanding Nothing.’

LUCY BRYANT

Bollocks to Brexit and Starbucks Lovers By Lucy Bryant

Lucy Bryant is a contemporary artist and graphic designer and graduated from the University of Derby. However, Bryant is less defined by her formal art training than by her loose, creative approach and varied influences. These include Pop Art and the Punk music scene. Responding to contemporary culture, Bryant’s art subverts the everyday and the banal. She's always striving to disrupt the ordinary and create something entirely new.


KRISTJANA S WILLIAMS

Lundunar Moth - Flecked Gold, Calm at Sea and Fox For Tea Diorama By Kristjana S Williams

Kristjana S Williams is an Icelandic born artist who studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins. This led to her gaining critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years. Williams has become well known in the industry. This has won an array of awards from ‘Dulux Colour Awards’, ‘D&AD’, a New York Festivals Grand Prix and First Prize. As well as this, she was shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.
