Lauren Everitt

BA (Hons) Fine Art | Class of 2020

Within my work I create Neo-expressionist paintings. The subject is usually based around abstract figurative images of people and animals. I base my work on things I know and feel. My work may sometimes be disturbing, and verges on dark humour. I use a mixture of mediums within my work for example paint, pencil, pens, ink, oil pastels and collage. Within my work I try to evoke an emotional force and morbid beauty towards strange things.

It is important that my emotions try to come across in my paintings to the viewer. As an artist I like to express my feelings rather than demonstrate them. My work is highly influenced by artists such as Laurie Vincent, Jean-Michel Basquiatt and Pablo Picasso. My work is also influenced by street art and street culture.
