Léa Dalissier is a London-based artist who recently graduated from the Royal College of Art, completing her MA in Print.
She works primarily in screen print, creating multi-layered portraits that look at technological human histories and possible futures to address the present and shift modes of thinking as a way of tethering the speculation to the present time.
With a research-based visual practice, her work aligns with notions revolving around ecological awareness and socio-political activism, one that she proposes as ‘kind activism’. An ideology that aims to inform and allow for contemplation – a chance to slow down in an anxious and fast-paced world.
Her practice appropriates elements of familiar Sci-Fi, pop culture and relates to the New Weird movement with its surreal World-building content, utopian timelines and dreamlike poetic aesthetics.
Léa has exhibited in a number of galleries and venues in London and Paris, (France). In addition, her work is held in collections at the V&A, Royal College of Art and the National Archive collection. Earlier this year Léa was shortlisted for the ARTIQ Graduate Award.
