A-side B-side presents:



Sandra Dieckmann Impromptu Pop Up Show

Show Dates: 23rd to 27th October 2014

Public View: Friday 24th October 7-9pm

"The best folktales have a dark edge. Conversely, the best folk art pops with colour - perhaps as a visual way of whistling in the dark, perhaps a celebration of the richness of northern Europe's storytelling tradition. Sandra Dieckmann's nature inspired illustration has got that elusive, comfortable yet disquieting quality in spades."(Digital Artist Magazine)

Self-proclaimed 'Womanimal' Sandra Dieckmann is an illustrator and artist whose work has been applied to a wide array of international commissions and projects.  She's worked with clients like Sky, Lily Cole, WWF, Andersen Press and Al Jazeera on book illustrations, editorial, apparel and more. In 2011, Oscar winning animator and illustrator Shaun Tan chose Sandra as the Emerging Talent in Illustration for her image, ‘Fox Tree’.  In 2013 Etsy flew her to Australia and New Zealand to speak at Semi Permanent Conferences about her life and work.

She enjoys observing the world, creating creatures and anything else that involves creative play. Her work mainly evolves around nature and wildlife , drifting, dreams and all the things that touch her personally. Working in mixed media to achieve her creative vision a lot of her work is self-initiated.  Prints as well as other merchandise, is sold through a successful online shop and an extensive list of worldwide stockists.

Sandra currently works as Freelance artist & illustrator from her studio ‘Mama Wolf’ at Hackney Downs Studios in east London.  In early 2015 she is looking to take a bit of a hiatus to write and illustrate her first book!

Sandra will be in the gallery to welcome you with framed work and prints.

There will be art on sale at reduced prices to make space in her studio and just in time for your pre-Xmas shopping!
