Dunlin Press’ new release Priced Out is written by acclaimed artist Tinsel Edwards.
Priced Out is Tinsel’s first book and is being launched at Atom Gallery, 127 Green Lanes, London N16 on 3 August 2017, 6-9pm.
Tinsel Edwards (born 1979) is a British artist originally from Leamington Spa, England. She lives and works in London.
Tinsel’s art is politically motivated but there is also an autobiographical element – the subjects and themes she tackles often relate to her personal experiences. Predominantly she works with oil paint on canvas, but her varied practice also includes printmaking, sign writing and painting on different surfaces such as bedsheets, reclaimed wood and correx board.
She has exhibited across the UK and in Germany, Austria, Poland and America. She has worked with The Art Conference, Jealous Gallery, Pure Evil Gallery, The Art Car Boot Fair, and Galerie Michaela Stock in Vienna, amongst others, and has also produced work for Banksy’s Dismaland.
Tinsel was a singer in a girl punk band called The Fairies Band (2000-2007). She later co-founded a record label called Pushing Pussy Records. It specialised in 7” vinyl and provided a platform for female musicians. In 2012 she co-founded a gallery, project space and studios called A-side B-side in Hackney, East London.
Tinsel currently works from her Acme Studio in Homerton, East London, and lives with her husband and two children in Manor House, Haringey.
