We are back this July with the Summer Festival: Tropicana, turning our playground that is, the Hoxton Arches, into an illustration paradise. Set across two rooms and two outside spaces we will be showcasing a selection of the hottest illustrators, collectives, creative agencies, publications and print studios working in the UK and Europe right now.
The Summer Festival will see us launch our very own pop-up Print Shop featuring a selection of our favourite artists and artworks from the 2013 Fair, as well as a hand picked selection of exciting new artists we have had our eye on for a while. Expect new works from our old favourites including Ruby Taylor, Ben Rothery, Cassandra Yap, Ursula Hitz & Yann Brien, as well as a choice selection of prints from new converts David Shillinglaw, Lau's, Crispin Finn, Marcelina Amelia and Sarah March.

Marburae Art Gallery
visual arts exhibition
"Influence’ is set to be one of the most anticipated art exhibitions of the summer."
Giant felt spray cans, visually bold and graphic illustrations
looking at sexuality and a site specific projection influenced by William
Morris’ pattern work. ‘Influence’ is set to be one of the most anticipated art
exhibitions of the summer.
London based artist Lucy Sparrow,
Polish born artist Marcelina Amelia and British Artist Kate Lynch will
transform the gallery and the intersection between art and craft is explored
within ‘Influence’ and is epitomised with Lucy Sparrow’s work. Lucy sets the
agenda for textiles within the urban art scene and her felt giant spray cans
epitomise this and steal the show wherever they are exhibited!
Lucy’s work has been shown alongside
Banksy in the ‘Urban Art Takeover’ and the Victoria and Albert museums touring
art show ‘ Urban Art Show’
In stark contrast to the bright, bold, felt
work our influence exhibition also features the delicate experimental print
work and site-specific projection inspired by William Morris and created by
Artist Kate Lynch. For those of you, like us, who long over William Morris’
pattern work then this is an exhibition not to be missed!
Our third and final artist is
Marcelina Amelia, Polish born and London based. Her illustrations draw together
the urban and funkiness of Lucy’s work with the delicate line work of Kate
Lynch’s pattern work. Her work consists of glorious bold illustrations that
look at sexuality and relationships in a style that is inspired by German
Expressionists Ernest Ludwig Kirchner and Egon Schiele.
Marburae Gallery is choosing to
showcase 3 outstanding artists for ‘Influence’, in a twist to their usual
exhibitions of 12 artists. This is in order to allow each artist space to
showcase large projects that draw the viewer closer to the artist and their way
will take place at Marburae Art Gallery at 7.30pm - 9.00pm on 5th
June 2014. The exhibition will run from 5th June 2014 – 26th
July 2014. For more information please visit www.artinmacclesfield.co.uk

Art Wednesday: Where were you born and where did you grow up?
MA: I was born in Czestochowa, Poland, where I also grew up. Czestochowa is the city famous for Catholic Pilgrims.
AW: Where and what did you study?
MA: I moved to London to study Illustration at the University of Westminster. Before that I was attending an Art School in Poland, which was a 6 year program that offered me a wide range of courses, so I specialised in Graphic Design and Painting.
AW: What was your route in? Do you have anyone creative in your family?
MA: There’s no one that I know of that was an artist. Probably the most artistic gene comes from my mother, she loved to paint horses when she was a younger, but her parents forced her to study medicine, and sadly she never went back to painting.
AW: Tell us a bit about your work. How you make it? What is the process you go through from idea to finished piece?
MA: My thoughts are quite chaotic and I mix reality with dreams. I usually start with mapping my ideas and putting them into diagrams. After sketching and mapping, I start to see a story. This is when the ideas happen. I sketch a lot, and collage fragments of pieces together that inspire me. It might be a certain type of mouth, a text from a book, a line from TV Series (usually HBO GIRLS ), a colour or a pose. My work is like a puzzle, and later I decide on a final image and attempt to finalise it, sometimes unsuccessfully, sometimes successfully.
AW: What inspires you?
MA: Old movies by Fellini, old Polish folk tales, and visually – the School of Polish Poster, Catholic Iconography, dreams and memories, nightmares, people around me, music, sadness, and lust in the general sense, Egon Schiele, Basquiat, Francis Bacon and many others."
