Lot 51 - Lily Mixe - Beetle Mutation I
Acrylic & Screenprint Collage on Paper
Signed on Verso
Curated by Louise Fitzjohn
Lily Mixe is a graphic artist originating from Paris who has now based herself within the creative hot bed of London, UK. Lily’s artwork moves from paper and canvas, found objects and onto the surface of walls in the street.
Lily’s work mutates. It starts as a sketch, it builds and becomes a form, filling and layering textures and patterns that give it a life of its own. The art lives in books, on paper, found objects and ultimately become fully realised when added to the landscape; pasted to bricks and cement, continuing to change over time, changing with the weather, with plants, pollution, graffiti.
