Fashion (paintings & drawings)
Pearl Bates paints powerful fantasy portraits which illuminate the inner passions of her subjects. The images are an unashamed celebration of beauty and glamour, glorifying in colour her favourite subject of strong, alluring women. The artwork is about women defining themselves, which Pearl explores through a woman’s sense of colour and form, with a style that blends illustration and high art.
This young emerging artist has recently exhibited at the house of John Cleese in California, and has work in private collections across Northern America and Europe. She is currently featured in the new London/Brighton magazine, “Venus”.
