• Mc Llamas

    MC is currently in her third year of BA at City and Guilds of London Art School. Born and raised in Paris, she moved to London in the aim of expanding her horizon and understanding of the arts. Her work presents the viewer with fresh, vibrant and darkly psychedelic pieces. In creating her body of work, MC aims to mirror societal issues involved in contemporary news and events. MC’s inspiration is driven from Warhol’s personality based myth of the artist and Picasso’s search for the perfect representation of an emotion truth through the use of classical media. MC tricks the eye of the viewer into gloomy painted and etched planes, with a certain underlying absolute idealism always remerging beneath the initially known image, ultimately striving for an identification of the system. Her work is found in many collections around the world, including the US, Switzerland and Qatar.
