Eliza at 53 Degrees North / Laurent Perrier

We recently wrote about contemporary art collective House of Artists, whose mission it is to spread exquisite art through the medium of vinyl wall coverings. 

In the latest collaboration with contemporary collective House of Artists, Maria has been commissioned to fill a single wall of 53 Degrees North / Laurent Perrier in Leeds. A stunning backdrop to the bar's VIP area, Eliza adds exquisite colour to the iconic space.

House of Artists in London

House of Artists - established by contemporary artist Ben Allen - works with a diverse collective of art practitioners (Maria amongst them) to create large scale wall coverings. Transforming interior spaces, House of Artists creates breathtaking vinyls - murals for the twenty-first century - which have attracted a cult following, for both public and private commissions.

Maria's work has just been featured in a glossy, London office block, where Frieda's face graces the whitewashed walls...

Amelia and Sugar Queen at Padstow Townhouse

The gorgeous Padstow Townhouse - a boutique hotel nestled within a large, eighteenth century house in Padstow's Old Town - and its Michelin starred restaurant Paul Ainsworth at No.6, now feature two of Rivans' pin-ups: Sugar Queen, a beautiful reworking of Sophia Loren, and Amelia, a twist on the iconic Audrey Hepburn - both of whom look right at home in their new, decadent space (and beside a Tracey Emin, too)!

Popcorn Noir at Saatchi Gallery

Images from 'Popcorn Noir', a 2015 solo show with Saatchi Gallery, London.  

The show was an exhibition of original works and prints, inspired by three, vintage films: Hitchcock's 'Rear Window', 'A Stolen Life' starring Bette Davis, and a number of the 1930s 'Tarzan' series. Staging a collage within a collage, the exhibition deconstructed and reassembled stills from the iconic films across the entire collection.
