Bonnie and Clyde
Bonnie and Clyde is a contemporary British artist, whose mixed media collage and print-work centres around scenes of the urban imaginary. 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 psycho-geography of the metropolis, immersing the viewer in beautiful and bizarre cityscapes. Music and ﬁlm, signage and iconography, bleed subtly into Bonnie and Clyde’s artwork, while architecture, street photography, and the coast appear as central, recurring tropes.
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. Burnley also worked in urban fashion and as a photographer for various music and culture magazines, before decamping to Brighton with her beloved Leica camera. It was here 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.
