Tinsel Edwards | Signs of the Times
A presentation by artist & activist Tinsel Edwards, in conversation with Doug Gillen from Fifthwall TV in July 2016 in London, UK.
Edwards grapples with notions of social responsibility, and reveals how artists can directly impact the fortunes of urban areas.
Tinsel Edwards is a London based artist and co-founder of A-side B-side Gallery in Hackney Downs. Born in 1979 in Leamington Spa, Tinsel graduated from Goldsmiths College in 2001 (Fine Art BA). Driven by the idea that art can change the world, Tinsel’s art comments on a wide variety of contemporary social and political issues. Predominantly working with oil on canvas, her paintings offer biting social commentary entwined with humour and an honest and autobiographical narrative.
