Miss olive47 wants to save your over-stimulated soul. The US born / UK based printmaker, illustrator, toy designer, street artist (and sometimes cult leader) is on a mission to bring a calm to the chaos of modern living. Taking cues from the psychology of Japanese kawaii, and the abundant, yet dark nature that surrounded her southern upbringing, olive47 seeks to create a sense of unique familiarity in the characters that inhabit her work in an attempt to deliver the viewing public into a different, more well-adjusted state of being through the visual dialogues created in her imagery.
Likes: tiny mammals, gladiolas, tall boys, dub music, and white middle-class kids who pretend to be gangstas.
Dislikes: olives, anise or banana flavored items.
She was once rumoured to be the bastard daughter of Tammy Faye Bakker, and her friends tell her she’s a good dancer. She might be in love with you.
