Red Parking Wall, Digital Design on Graphic Vinyl, 2022
Zoe Slatter’s work is inspired by the sweeping curve of Wembley Stadium, the people of Brent, International Women’s Day and Spring. Her installation blends typography and illustration with a colour palette echoing colours from the non-binary/transgender flag, highlighting the theme of 2022 International Women’s Day #breakthebias.
Zoë Slatter is a London based illustrator and graphic designer inspired by the movement of our bodies and nature. Following a childhood in the countryside, Zoë moved to London to pursue a career in design and channels her love of dance and nature throughout her work. Zoë believes that dance can be transformative as a storytelling platform and explores this intersectionality with graphic design and illustration. This relationship is shown through Zoë’s use of quirky nature symbols and figure drawings that can be displayed on their own or layered over graphic design, static photography and moving image, bringing the work back to life. As an artist, Zoë believes that even the most simplistic objects can be made to move.
Figures of Change art trail
Launching for International Women's Day 2022, 'Figures of Change’ consists of eight major public realm artworks by an all-female line up of leading artists from around the world. Curated by Zoë Allen of Artistic Statements, 'Figures of Change' adds to the existing Wembley Park Art Trail and takes shape across a myriad of unconventional outdoor canvases in site specific locations around the neighbourhood. The free public art includes digital pieces, lighting installations, typography, graphic design, photography and illustration. Reflecting the theme of IWD2022, 'Figures of Change' explores the positive shift in attitudes towards women and a collective desire for change following a hugely destabilising global pandemic.
