Marcelina Amelia

Marcelina Amelia is from Poland, but now lives and works as an illustrator in Brighton. Marcelina is also co-founder of clothing brand Ivory Jar. Having previously studied Fine Art and Graphic Design in Poland, she then moved to London where she received her degree in Illustration and Visual Communication at University of Westminster.

Marcelina’s work combines painting, drawing and screen-printing techniques. She draws inspirations from Catholic iconography, folk tales, childhood memories, dreams, sexuality and human relationships. Her works are an uneasy mixture of lustful darkness and adolescent innocence.

She has been featured in publications including Booooooom, Digital Arts, Art Wednesday. Vogue and Ballad Of Magazine. She exhibited at D&AD, New Designers, London Design Festival, and took part in Faberge’s Big Egg Hunt, alongside with Mr. Brainwash, Sir Peter Blake and Marc Quinn.

Marcelina launched MESH at Of Cabbages and Kings in 2017. MESH is a multidisciplinary art brand and design studio. Find out more about the launch here.
