Details

WE ARE present a new art & ale exhibition…Wakey Wakey, Grime and Shine. An exhibition of new work by artist Seanna Doonan at Wakefield Beer Exchange.

Seanna Doonan studied illustration at the University of Huddersfield and holds a Masters in Authorial Illustration from the University of Falmouth. Based in Wakefield, Seanna specialises in mural art and illustration and her passion lies in the creation of historical and socio-political pieces. Seanna hopes her work reflects the lives, struggles and relationships of ordinary people, providing a platform for social comment.

Working predominantly with pen and ink, Seanna observes and illustrates an honest image of life, heavily influenced by her own roots and community. She also has a long-term love of children’s illustration and has created dozens of pieces for schools, libraries and private projects.

Touching on her own background and memories of Wakefield, Seanna has a desire to articulate the past, and present of the city along with all its changes. Through a series of illustrations taken from life and photographs Seanna records the reality of the ordinary people living here showing an honest account of good times and bad.

Exhibition on display until Sunday 22nd July.
