Predominantly producing off-kilter collages, drawings and prints, Abbot’s work is multidisciplinary to a tee. Taking inspiration from a 1960s drug-style aesthetic, new age kitsch and hyper-modern colour clashes – Abbot’s work is witty, with a subtle tenderness lurking at the edges of the frame.

Aside from her myriad selection of one-off prints, furniture pieces, paintings and drawings – Abbot has produced commercial work for an expansive array of clients ranging from Orange (opens in new tab) and MTV (opens in new tab) to Nike (opens in new tab), Nylon (opens in new tab) and The Barbican (opens in new tab). She has also designed T-shirts for 2K (opens in new tab), Urban Outfitters (opens in new tab) and Timberland (opens in new tab).

Soulful, fragile and ascetic at times, Abbot’s zeitgesisty productions are all about Technicolor good times splashed across the page.
