Alicia Gradon currently lives and works in London. She documents in traditional drawings and writing. These observations have helped her create an imaginary world for over a decade called Perpetuia. The project uses the real and relatable to create these imaginary illustrations; both fantastical creatures, topology, new languages to distant landscapes are all accompanied by a narrative companion and exhibited like an open book.
Her work and interest in the natural world has inspired research into new ways drawing and science can be connected visually. Her most recent projects visualise quantitative data in a traditional art form, where the data and art both tell a story, side by side in attempt to cognitively emote and inform an audience together.
Alicia has exhibited across London. She completed a residency at Kingsbrae Gardens, Canada in 2017, awarded a fellowship at the Vice Versa Foundation in Goa, India 2018 and has worked at the Natural History Museum, London as a part of auditing the Banksian21 collection. She is concentrating on turning her illustrations of Perpetuia into a novel, continuing her research and teaches within the SketchBetter Sc.
