Featured Artist: Annatomix
Previously a musician, sound engineer and DJ – doing occasional illustration work – Annatomix decided to make art her full time endeavour in 2010. She has spent the last 6 years developing her style and narrative, and produced her first solo show in London, in February 2015. She creates symbolic, modernist works – inspired by philosophy, theology, mathematics and science fiction – and has become particularly well known for her large scale murals, distinctive polygonal animals and geometric patterns.
