Blue Shop Cottage

For Blue Shop Cottage Andre Williams presents The Room for his debut solo exhibition. The Room sees Williams’ unique illustrative style applied to custom made furniture, wallpaper, furnishings and bespoke rug alongside original drawings transforming this intimate Victorian shop into a fantastical living room.

Williams’ work focuses on striking typography alongside meticulously rendered illustrations. His eye for detail draws him to a wide range of subject matter including iconic 20th century design objects – textile, furniture and architecture through to 1980’s video games.

In recent large scale works Williams’ has applied his graphic drawing style and striking use of colour to hand screen-printed textiles, painted woodcut reliefs, furniture and interiors, bringing his flamboyant drawings of interiors and street scenes to life.
