Gutless Wonder creates eye-popping CG illustrations and 3D sculptures. With intricate patterns and vivid colours, her work brings to mind psychedelia, religious iconography and tribal art.
The mixed media artist graduated from Bournemouth University in 2013 with a Master’s degree in computer animation. Her fascination with virtual worlds and characters was born out of researching the porn industry while studying an art degree and discovering online role-playing game World of Warcraft.
“My fine art degree was spent creating work in response to research on pornography – particularly the influence of the internet on the porn industry and its distribution,” she says. “This research led me to become interested in exploring interaction online and the impact it has had on human experiences and relationships.”
Gutless Wonder’s work spans animation, CG illustration and 3D objects. Her project Happiness Figures (see lead image) explores how to project “optimum happiness” in a sculpture.
Gutless Wonder often posts new projects and creative experiments on Instagram. Her profile recently caught the eye of Diesel creative director Nicola Formichetti and she created an animation for his fashion brand Nicopanda.
