Victoria Topping, 9th November, 7.30pm

Posted by Mark Pepperall on

Victoria is an internationally acclaimed artist and illustrator who graduated with a BA in Illustration in 2008. Her pieces are created through building up multiple textures and images and combining these to develop a distinct visual language, using recurring motifs. She works using a fusion of technology and traditional techniques – often using photography, painting, gold-leafing and cut up collage which is then digitally scanned and arranged on the computer, before she works back in to the resulting digital print. Recently she have begun to expand my output to include work in different media – from large scale oil paintings to one-off textured collages.

Her work is heavily influenced by music, from the styling and art direction of 1970s Jazz and Soul to the passion and ebullience of Gospel and Disco. She takes musical aspects and work to synthesize them into visual form, working towards distilling the vibrancy of music into a ‘music for the eyes’. More broadly, She aims to impregnate her work with its own unique soul, through harnessing a blend of spirituality, culture, the cosmos and mother earth.

As well as producing original works and prints, She is proud to be Artist Director of On The Corner Records undertakeing all the visual side of the label. Victoria has also had the privilege of working with Art Yard Records on Sun-Ra. Along side this she has created commercial work for brand identities; produce branding for festivals; large scale murals and have also designed nightclub interiors. For a comprehensive look at the commercial work Victoria has undertaken, check out her online portfolio. In addition, She also work on historic interiors – digitally recreating wallpapers for some of the most prestigious heritage sites in the UK.
