450 Years


12 February, 2020

In a series of original artworks commissioned especially for The Royal Exchange, illustrator Justyna Stasik explores the myriad forms of love in her distinctive, playful style. Stasik’s work expresses the emotion and energy of human activities and interactions, featuring bright colours, exaggerated proportions, relatable characters and familiar icons. Abstract shapes and squiggles add an element of the surreal in scenes that cleverly convey the duel reality of the physical and the imaginative worlds we all inhabit.
