Where: Oink Gallery, 95 Victoria Road, Swindon SN1 3B
When: Friday 13th May, 7PM
Just in time for the summer rays Oink is bursting with excitement to bring to you an Oink Gallery staple; Victoria Topping!
Having worked with Victoria Topping for many years, and the huge success of her 2019 exhibition at Oink, they can’t wait to showcase her new works as they exit the mad flowing of her mind!
With more than a decade of experience, Victoria is an artist and illustrator with numerous solo exhibitions across the UK and Europe including shows in London, Barcelona, Strasbourg, Ibiza and Bristol.
With an ever-evolving creative practice that fuses digital and traditional techniques, Victoria has created a distinct visual language in her work, incorporating vivid colour, bold forms and recurring motifs. Predominantly known for her printmaking, Victoria is now increasingly focused on creating original pieces; one-off multimedia works that sit at the interface of collage and painting.
Drawing influence from varied and disparate sources – everything from high camp disco sleeves to 1950s technical drawing manuals, from exotic flora and fauna to traditional folk art – Victoria’s work achieves a synthesis that is at once both unique and familiar.
Her singular style has caught the eye of many businesses, and she’s carried out branding, illustration and graphic briefs for numerous festivals, nightclubs, wine producers and record labels.
In 2019 Victoria illustrated her first book, Mythologica, which was awarded children’s non-fiction book of the year on Amazon. She is Artistic Director for On the Corner Records, an award winning independent record label based in London. Victoria currently lives and works in Bath, South West England.
Oink is looking forward to the extravaganza of her work filling Oink with colour and spread out into your home!
Come around to the opening night to meet the artist and enjoy a splendid evening with tasty drinks and good music!
