Celebrated designer Jess Eaton has saturated the national press with her subversive and potent erotic work, which empowers women and transcends both art and fashion. After wowing the world as the woman behind ‘Roadkill Couture’ – which has garnered a huge following from fashion titans including Lady Gaga and Kate Moss – Eaton’s focusing her attention on the passion at the heart of her work and life -sex.
The Brighton based artist’s work echoes her own inimitable thirst for life, love and lust. Her new pieces are the first in a larger body of work named COITUS that includes sculpture, jewellery and culminates in a fashion show in 2015. COITUS celebrates her wild and imaginative approach to sex, all given her trademark ‘dark edge’.
Andrew Shoben is the founder of greyworld, a world renowned artists’ collective which creates public art. Whilst greyworld’s work has
increased in size and scope over the last 20 years, Andrew’s personal work has begun to focus on the private, the personal, and the hidden.
Whilst both bodies of work are playful, Andrew’s personal work explores more sensual themes, and seeks to allow interaction on a smaller, more intimate scale. Working in a variety of media, including neon, large format prints, and new mechanical works, the results are unusual, sensual art that hold the gaze.
After lecturing at the Royal College of Art for four years, Andrew became Professor of Public Art at Goldsmiths University. He is a regular contributor to television, radio and print, and lectures extensively around the world. Most recently he presented a show on BBC Radio 4 entitled “Change of Art,” and was nominated President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
Michelle Mildenhall is a UK artist with a distinctive style. She creates provocative art that combines stylised imagery with her passion for
latex in a new and innovative way. Michelle’s work is highly recognisable, as each artwork is meticulously constructed using sheet latex.
Michelle seduces the viewer into a world of disconcerting beauty and mystique. By using popular but somewhat taboo themes of
sexuality, fetishism and subversion, she creates work in which a fascination with the subject evolves and an underlying element of sexual association develops purely because of the medium in which she creates her art.
Michelle’s work has been exhibited throughout the UK and in America and has appeared in international publications. Her artwork is being featured in a BBC interior design program this Autumn and has also been published in Skin Two magazine.
