In this big messy city it can be difficult to find something special, that isn't mass produced & doesn't come with a city slicker price tag. 

At Stour Space we love independent businesses, designers, artists & entrepreneurs that come up with good ideas & good products for good living.

Mixed media artist Marcelina Amelia is one of our all time faves. Falling somewhere between painting, illustration & print, Marcelina's dark yet playful (& sometimes pretty sexual) style is quite unlike anything we've seen before.

Influenced by pot plants, childhood memories, Polish folktales, religious iconography, sexuality, dreams & the overcrowded streets of London, Marcelina's works are an uneasy mixture of lustful darkness & adolescent innocence.

As well as working as an Art Director & Fashion Designer for her own label Ivory Jar, Marcelina also offers a graphic design service, creates her own prints & self-publishes a range of zines. 

Marcelina's stunning prints & zines are available now in the SHOP& are also on display in the gallery as part of the current illustration exhibition Loop Dreams, at Stour Space (until August 3rd).  

Have a look at our Facebook & Instagram albums to see more, or better yet pay us a visit this summer. Stretch those legs & see this brilliant stuff with your own eyes.
