Chrissy Wallace, London

London illustrator Chrissy Wallace
Chrissy Wallace is a talented and ambitious illustrator and sculptor originally from Glasgow making her way in London as a freelancer. Her almost hallucinatory pieces are composed of strong imagery and fine detail, clashing traditional techniques with vivid graphics. I especially love her Día de los Muertos work. I felt as if I've known Chrissy for ages after hearing all about her when I explored Berlin with her boyfriend Che. I was fortunate to spend a really lovely afternoon with them both wandering through Little Venice, eating fish & chips and seeing a ton of alternative galleries and shops in East London. Chrissy's right in the middle of organizing The Picture Show, an exhibition of young illustrators including herself and Che, which was great to hear about firsthand despite the fact that I'll sadly be back in Calgary by then. So, if you're going to be in London in July definitely check it out.
