Illustrator Polly Nor has signed to the Ridley Scott Creative Group’s RSA Films Photo and Art and Black Dog Films for UK representation.
Best known for her dark and satirical drawings of women and their demons, Polly’s work features a range of hand-drawn and digital illustration, sculpture, and installation work. Interweaving themes of identity, sexuality and emotional turmoil throughout her work, Polly is inspired by her own experience of life and the struggle for self-acceptance in the internet-age.
Since graduating in 2011, Polly has gained over a million Instagram followers and put on three solo exhibitions in London, ‘Sorry Grandma’ (2016) at 71a Gallery, ‘It's Called Art Mum, Look It Up’ (2017), and ‘Airing My Dirty Laundry In Public’ (2018) at Protein Studios.
In 2020, during lockdown, Polly worked with animator Andy Baker on short film project for WeTransfer. ‘How Have You Been’ follows a day in the life of a young woman, moving through the world experiencing little contact with anyone – as the film looks to portray the feeling of isolation alongside the other whirlpool of emotions brought on by 2020. Polly and Andy’s previous collaboration, a music video for Chelou’s ‘Halfway to Nowhere’, was viewed over 20 million times.
Polly’s previous commissions include work for Bloomsbury Publishing, Dazed Digital, Dr Martens, Complex Magazine and Gucci. She has been featured across i-D, Dazed, Wonderland, Stylist, BBC Three, Refinery29, Time Out, Nylon, Cool Hunting, It's Nice That, and Creative Review, as well as a cover feature with Polyester and Juxtapoz magazine.
