Artist in Residence, Maria Rivans

A mash-up of Surrealism & Pop-Art

Rivans’ work re-appropriates vintage ephemera to create dreamy realms, which transport the viewer into fantastical worlds of the imaginary, each one suffused with vivid colour, arresting imagery, intricate detail, and finished with a dusting of subtle humour.

From Brighton to the world...

Maria works from her studio in Brighton: a kooky building, purpose built as a small cinema in 1911. She exhibits work throughout the UK as well as internationally, including Hong Kong, New York and across Europe. Notable solo shows include the Saatchi Gallery, London, and Galerie Bhak, Seoul. In 2015, Rivans was invited to show at Christies, London, for their ‘Out of the Ordinary’ sale. 

Extraordinary - outside and in

Maria has used her signature style to create the Lilo brand world. Surreal, giant fruits and botanicals overlap with urban landscapes and timeless homages to holidays and escape.

Cut out (the cal's) and keep!

Amongst her many accolades and shows she also published her first book in 2020 'Extraordinary Things to Cut Out and Collage' published.
