Rose Blake is an illustrator and artist. She studied Illustration and Animation at Kingston University, and an MA at the Royal College of Art ensued. She was awarded the D&AD Best New Blood Award and was recently shortlisted for the AOI prize and The World Illustration Awards.
Her jewel-like, mixed media art explores the beauty of relationships and humanity in a relatable, sometimes whimsical, sometimes sophisticated way. Blake grew up in the Art World, and vast museum-scapes often provide a backdrop, a stage, in work that explores a rich narrative and interaction between an array of idiosyncratic individuals. A couple exchange flowers, a child totters hand-in-hand with their parent, their droopy teddy almost lost in the movement, and a yoga-loving bystander is entertained by a giddy cluster of school children with matching rucksacks.
