Jasmine Smart
Pop up Studio
Monday 18th July- Saturday 30th July

Jasmine Smart B.A. (Hons) majored in Fine Art, receiving her degree from Oxford Brookes School of Arts in 2015.

The Pop-up-up shop will feature new illustrations from her series entitled 'Colour pop Girls.'
On display will be a collection of pencil portraits with unique ‘pops’ of colour. The elegance and design of each beauty is as individual as the lady, which is reflected in pattern, facial features and composition.

Each work is drawn onto individually picked paper by multiple suppliers, with a mixture of mediums to create a minimalistic fluidity while still maintaining intricate details.
