Now, this is a story all about how, my life got flipped-turned upside down…
Just kidding but now that I have your attention.
My name is Pearl Ivy (yes, its my real name), I'm a London-based Artist and Designer. From a young age I have always had a love and passion for art. I loved that I was able to express myself and there were no limitations.
The Pop Art movement has had a major impact in my work, as I love bold abstract colours, pop culture and people. My favourite artists and who inspired me are Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
My collection is all things fun and pop culture. I wanted to create pieces that were relatable and bold and not just the typical traditional style of cards and prints.
My signature style
One of my most frequently asked questions is "What are the black and white lines". The black and white lines, which I call highlights are to highlight the areas of the figures face and body. I created the style with no intentions, I first used the style in my illustration series called #BeyondTheGirl, which featured all my favourite girl bands I listened to growing up in the 90s/00s TLC and Spice Girls to name a few. I continued to incorporate the style and it has now become my distinctive feature in my work.
