Inspired by the traditional imagery of trade union banners and protest placards, Rebecca Strickson’s work explores the power of community and collaboration.
Using eye-popping, psychedelic palettes, bold and busy compositions, and fragments of typography, Strickson’s aesthetic harks back to the 1960s, the golden age of civil unrest and positive change.
Strickson has been shortlisted twice for the Association of Illustrators award.
Since graduating from Goldsmiths in 2002, Strickson has also worked with a number of high-profile clients including Royal Mail, Coal Drops Yard, Sony, Channel 4, The Southbank, Barbican and artsy.com.
As well as illustration, Strickson creates large scale murals, embroidered banners, and colourful wall hangings.
