Hair Lines

An exhibition of illustrations…

Hair Lines is a series of mixed media illustrations developed from my daily sketches on my way to and from my East London studio and from conversations while having my hair done at Beaucatcher salon in Stoke Newington.

What, and who, I spot on my journeys depends on when I travel: an early start means labourers, then City workers, there’s the creative industry rush hour and a late night catches partygoers and shift workers making their weary ways home. At any time of day, one of the things that expresses London in all its human variety is hair: colourful, subtle, modern, vintage, sculptural, practical, point of difference or badge of belonging.

The bold line style has been developed for the salon’s space and sightlines.

I designed a folding, zine format A7 mini catalogue to accompany the exhibition.

Beaucatcher salon, 44 Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 0LU
The exhibition ran from July to September 2018.
