Amelie Barnathan is an artist living in London, whose body of work spans illustration, fine art and printmaking. The foundation for her work stems from her obsessive relationship with drawing, particularly for its intimacy and very direct relationship with the mind. She's invested in creating new, alternative and absurd universes, fuelled by historical and contemporary references through personal fantasies and desires. She won the Jerwood Drawing Student Prize in 2016 with a five metre long drawing on female hysteria that is now exhibited in the Stillpoint Space for psychology and she has recently held a solo show in Mexico. She has worked commercially for clients like Hachette Editions, Nespresso, Ohh Deer and Mubi Films.
