COMING UP: Poppy Waddilove

The Strand Gallery is delighted to announce our forth coming exhibition Elegance in Motion, a showcase of fashion illustrations by London-based artist Poppy Waddilove.


Having already been described as the rising star of London’s Art Scene by Grazia, Waddilove creates graceful yet powerful works that are “inspired by the line of the body and spontaneity of motion, painted quickly, intensely, with the ultimate intention of creating a timeless elegance in the women portrayed“.

Her expressive works draw from a wide range of influences from 1940s and 1950s fashion portraiture, Japanese culture and films such as Vertigo and Shame, with her distinguished pieces portraying the spontaneity of movement.

Elegance in Motion launches to coincide with London Fashion week this September, where Waddilove is a regular fixture having been invited by fashion design designers such as HEMYCA and Kerry Nixon to illustrate their catwalk shows, which offers designers a dynamic platform on which to present their collections.

This unmissable exhibition will celebrate the ethereal elegance of Waddilove’s work and will collide art with fashion and the female form. Showing 10th-13th September at The Strand Gallery, 11am-6pm.

All works are for sale, please email to request a catalogue.
