Mayumi Yamase is an artist living and working in Tokyo. Her work whether a drawing, a painting or in 3D-form is composed of colours and organic forms. How the space is occupied with these colours and shapes helps to unfold unexpected forms organically grown like a plants and living like organs and a unique dialogue between them.
Mayumi has exhibited pieces in London, Singapore and numerous times in throughout Japan alongside commissioned work for Comme des Garçons.
Nigel Howlett lives and works in London. He has developed a graphite cartoony style of drawing which references early Disney movies and painters such as the American artist Peter Saul. Howlett depicts hairy characters, acting out scenarios that reflect familiar social anxieties and conditions. Always humorous and sometimes sinister, common themes in the work include our obsession with technology and our relationship with social media.
Nigel also runs a set design practice working with clients which include the BBC, channel 4, Issey Miyake and Nike. In 2015 he co-founded Nan Studios, a Photographic and creative studio in Clapton East London.
