Storm Athill graduated from Wimbledon College of Art in 2013. Since then she has been undertaking private commissions of ‘word portraits’ of artists she admires, who include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Frida Kahlo, Johnny Cash and Prince. Her fascination with topography has led to finely detailed painted alphabets. Athill’s expression of wordplay in her work mimics the creative expressionism of the artists she illustrates. Her monochrome patterning creates a striking effect which captures the attention.
