Emily Forgot presents NEVERLAND at KK Outlet

Graphic artist and illustrator Emily Forgot unveils her new solo show NEVERLAND at KK Outlet tonight.

A side-step away from Emily’s commercial work, NEVERLAND explores her personal passion for buildings and spaces – both real and imagined, through a series of drawings, assemblage and sculpture.

A playful world that embraces the disciplines of architecture, interior and product design, yet is informed by her illustrative background and personal sensibility for surreal narrative awaits.

The journey to realise her shelved sketchbook musings has led to collaborations with craftsmen Charlie Mckenizie and rug makers Ceadogan to produce domestic objects that feel perfectly at home within the aesthetically curious NEVERLAND.

We last saw Emily on stage at Glug Birmingham in June this year, where we spoke about her influences and inspirations and what drives her as a creative. Having worked in the industry for the last 10 years she has amassed a diverse range of international clients from cultural institutions, advertising, retail, publishing and editorial.

Embracing the odd, the everyday and sometimes the surreal, Emily Forgot’s playful visual language and image making continues to innovate, evolve and surprise – and we’re sure her latest collection won’t disappoint!

In NEVERLAND, Emily Forgot takes you on a walk through ideas and visions that until now had only lived in her sketch-books.
