Alake Shilling

Alake Shilling (b. 1993, Los Angeles, CA) is known for her vibrant paintings and ceramics of creatures and landscapes drawn from her imagination. Dogs, cats, bears, ladybirds, rabbits and even Minnie Mouse all appear with wide, expressive eyes evoking the barefaced emotion of a young child. These relatable feelings are carefully crafted by the artist through precise rendering of form and colour, resulting in works that are at once intimate and peculiar.
