In Focus: Emily Catherine

26 June 17 photos: Emily Catherine

Hip hop head and scribbling sensation Emily Catherine can be found in every arty corner of Nottingham city. Having worked alongside Risograph stalwarts Dizzy Ink, as well as poetry publishing house Mud Press, our Emily knows a thing or two when it comes to beautiful creations. The absolute badgyal is a specialist in hand-drawn and hand-painted pieces, but here she swaps the art utensils for a camera to answer our questions in photographic form...

Catch Emily’s work at Surface Gallery’s Street Art Festival, which runs from Saturday 24 June until Saturday 15 July. And if you’re down London ways on Tuesday 30 June, catch her painting for The Urban Takeover on Portobello, for FerArts.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
