Camden Commissions - Marianna Madriz

Artists draw their Camden

With the support of House of Illustration, Swiss Cottage Gallery has launched the Camden Drawn project, inviting artists and illustrators to interpret Camden and show their work at Swiss Cottage Library from May 2017 to February 2018. By bringing what is outside in, the works are a fun representation of the diversity, community and adventure of Camden life!

Each poster will also be shown on the homepage of Love Camden for the duration of the exhibition. Keep an eye on Love Camden’s homepage for the most current poster and below to link to our archive!

This month: artist Marianna Madriz!





About the artist

Marianna Madriz is an Illustrator born and raised in Venezuela. In 2014 she graduated from the Arts University Bournemouth with a First Class degree and became winner of the Dorset Visual Arts Prize, an annual accolade granted to the highest achieving art graduate in the region.

Since then she’s gone on to create work for a variety of clients in the Publishing and Editorial sectors including Creative Review, Anorak Magazine, Narratively, The Eighty-Eight Journal, Aquila Magazine, and Revista Territorio. She’s also showcased her work extensively across the UK through group exhibitions and festivals.

Marianna additionally currently works for the Association of Illustrators, the professional body dedicated to champion Illustrators and illustration overall through education, promotion and campaigning in order to achieve a thriving industry.

She currently lives in London and is working on her first illustrated children’s book. Her goal for 2018 is to continue developing her personal work, and to illustrate more children’s books (and some comics too).
