Bonnie and Clyde (British b. 1986)
"Bonnie and Clyde is a UK-based contemporary artist who uses photography, paint, collage and print to construct mixed media originals, 3D pieces and limited edition screen-prints.
Travel plays a huge part in shaping her art, and as each image is distorted, cut and layered, Bonnie and Clyde creates bizarre and far off places that still retain an element of familiarity."

Bonnie and Clyde is a contemporary British artist, whose mixed media collage and print-work centres around scenes of the urban imagery. Crossing medium and type, Bonnie and Clyde’s work takes the form of limited edition screen-prints, mixed media originals on paper, wood and canvas as well as 3D pieces. Employing a blend of photography, collage and paint, the emotive art of Bonnie and Clyde explores the psychogeography of the metropolis, immersing the viewer in beautiful and bizarre cityscapes.
Steph Burnley (the creative spark behind Bonnie and Clyde) studied 3D design at Kingston University, before setting up her own graphic design business in Manchester. It was in Brighton, however, that her passion for photography and graphics fused in the art of screen-printing: a practice that became the cornerstone of her distinctive, collage aesthetic.
