Fee Greening is a London based artist and illustrator who graduated from Central St. Martin's in 2012 and received a Masters from the Royal College of Art in 2014. Fee has a great talent for taking the traditional and giving it a contemporary and witty spin. She has adopted an age-old method of working with dip pen and ink. She is a talented draughtsman, storyteller and social commentator.
Her work is clearly inspired by Medieval, Gothic and Flemish art, but whilst referencing tradition, her witty titles and contemporary subject matter gives her work a currency and playful edge. Her well-known Icons series plays on religious iconography, but adapts this style to depict celebrities such as Beyonce, Kate Bush and Grace Jones, as well as cultural figures such as famous artists, including Picasso, Dali and Barbara Hepworth.
Fee's series Body Language transforms supple figures to spell out the alphabet in elegant and surprising ways. Each pose looks natural, the bodies offering poetic stories that show beyond the letters they form. In Body Language, Fee turns each figure into a character that creates a conversation between stylised figures, friends and lovers. Fee has collaborated with Missoma to create pendants featuring her artwork from the series.
Fee has also designed an exclusive Art Collector Gift Card for Partnership Editions, which is a great option for those who want to help someone start their art collection with us, and the perfect Christmas, Wedding or House Warming present. Click here to view our Gift Cards.
