Getting to know Muswell Hill Artist, Anya Beaumont

Earlier this week, we announced that GPI is sponsoring North London artist, Anya Beaumont, as she undertakes an exciting new project with the N10 community, called Mapping Muswell Hill. Here, we’ve put together some information on Anya and her work.

About Anya

Anya creates drawings and installations, working with materials like paper, steel and bioresin. She has completed a number of residencies in very diverse surroundings, including woodland and inside public spaces.

“By making something that is transitory permanent – initially by drawing it then by making it out of paper or steel I am attempting to capture and fix a form that only has a fleeting veracity.”

About Anya’s Mapping Muswell Hill Project

Her latest project will see Anya creating a series of new works out of waste paper, donated by the N10 community.

“I find it interesting that as we are (and have been apparently for many years) moving towards a paperless society that we still seem to be surrounded by the stuff. Although i-pads and the like are available to those that can afford and wish to have them I think there is a basic enjoyment that one gets from writing/doodling/drawing on paper that we are not likely to give up on any time soon.”


Get involved!

Donate your waste paper to Anya’s Mapping Muswell Hill project by emailing Anya to arrange collection or dropping your waste paper into Muswell Hill Library.

Meet Anya and see her work in progress by visiting either theLOCALgallery or Muswell Hill Library, where she will be undertaking residencies throughout the course of the project.

Why not pop into Muswell Hill Library on Saturday 31st March, when Anya will be in residence upstairs, for the ‘Green is Good in Muswell Hill‘ event?
