ARTIST INFO

About 

Araminta Blue (b. 1990, Cyprus) currently lives and works in London. Blue graduated with a Master's in painting from the Slade School of Art in 2019 and holds a BA Hons from Ruskin School of Art. She has received numerous accolades including the Artists Collecting Society Studio Prize and was shortlisted for the Chadwell Award, Derek Hill Scholarship and the Hix Award. Blue's works have been presented in various solo and group exhibitions across the UK. Her recent works have been showcased in Christie's and Bonhams London. Araminta Blue is interested in how the imagined space can be used as an escape and protection from our ‘reality’, whilst at the same time it can help us view the real experience with an added clarity.
