GRADUATE WORK: THE NUTCRACKER

Having graduated from Middlesex’s Illustration BA in 2012, EILEEN KAI HING KWAN has gone on to exhibit her work in a number of exhibitions- both at home and abroad- and has become a staple of the Walthamstow’s vibrant art scene. Eileen was also shertlisted for an AOI Award in 2013.
Recently she collaborated with fellow local Walthamstow artist Carl Harris (CatBoy) to create ‘The Nutcracker’, an exhibition of drawings inspired by  Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet. For this Eileen chose to explore the magic and delight of the relationship between Clara and the Nutcracker; from their first meeting on Christmas Eve to their journey to The Land of Sweets following their victory over the Mouse King- all intricately illustrated in pencil and gouache;
