Ashes57

Ashes57 is an illustrator, painter and photographer whose work has provided some of the most iconic images of the underground bass music scene from the early days of dubstep through to footwork and beyond.  A distinctive visual style links her illustration, painting and print work - images which are dense and detailed with fine and intricate lines. Her complex cityscapes, rendered in a largely monochromatic palette with an occasional burst of colour, are playgrounds for a revolving cast of DJs, musicians and revellers. Musical collaborations include the artwork for the Wu-Tang Clan’s 2009 album, Enter the Dubstep, and the videos for three DJ Rashad tracks released on Teklife and Hyperdub.
