Daniella Batsheva is a self-proclaimed “Illustrator with a design habit” whose aesthetic straddles the line between underground fine art and the mainstream. Her work has been displayed in numerous galleries such as The Hive Gallery, Gabba Gallery, Art Expo NY, and her most recent solo exhibition, "Skirting Spectres" at the Crypt Gallery. She has illustrated for Paris Jackson, Kerrang!, Revolve Agency, Pizza Girl, and drawn numerous show posters, which have become well-known in London.
This is the time for artists to create a space for each other, outside of a digital umbrella. We're trendsetters, we're hard workers, and I think we're generally very interesting people. I suspect that if we build that community and space physically for each other, it'll inspire others to follow. Or maybe I'm just being idealistic and people really don't have the will to challenge the status quo. I think we're at an interesting social turning point and we have yet to see where it goes. I'm gonna stick around for the ride and if art becomes disliked, for whatever reason, I'll keep drawing out of spite.
