Book launch of 'A Wisp of Wisdom' at Blackwells Bookshop, illustrated by Emmie

A great evening was had by all at the launch of 'A Wisp of Wisdom' at Blackwells Bookshop in Oxford in December. 

A recap on the project...

WHAT'S THE IDEA?

We are eleven children's authors, an artist, a publisher, and a conservation project, working together to create a very special book.

Our book is inspired by traditional animal stories from the Korup forest in Cameroon: stories full of tricky tortoises, cunning monkeys, flies stronger than elephants, despicable crocodiles, and animals holding meetings up in the sky.

The tales are beautiful, and they are being lost. The children in the Korup have no books. (We mean this. No books. None.) They will never read their stories.

Our plan is simple: we have collected tales from the region's chiefs and elders. We borrow the stories, retell them in our book and then give them back.

We aim to give at least 2,000 free copies of our book to children in the Korup.

'Intertwined layers' – 10th – 13th November 2016
Pop up Game of Thrones exhibition

emmie-van-biervliet news-nov16

Approached by HBO to create a piece for a Game of Thrones Gallery exhibition in East London, due to the air of magical realism and colours in Emmie's work. The exhibition ran from 10th – 14th November to celebrate season 6 and the forthcoming season 7.

The piece created combines intricately layered pages representing different scenes from the Game of Thrones which are both separate and intertwined. The piece aims to represent the air of intrigue and mystery of the story. The pages, when illuminated spotlight details of different key scenes carved into the book which then blend into the background when the light changes and other scenes become apparent like a miniature theatre.

The exhibition took place in East London, 135 Bethnal Green, E27DG.

10th – 11th November: 12pm – 9pm
12th – 13th November: 10am – 6pm

Articles about the exhibition were featured in NME magazine, Time out, The Londonist and Secret London

There is a short article about the piece and exhibition here

The piece is for sale and there maybe limited edition Copies also available, for further details please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

'The Art of the Crayon' by Lorraine Bell

Emmie van Biervliet The Art of Crayon

Emmie's work has been featured in the mixed media part of the book 'The Art of the Crayon' by Lorraine Bell, Rockport Publishing 2016. The book is full of unusual and quirky ways of working with crayons including sculpture and resist techniques. It starts with the quote 'Artists are just children who refuse to put their crayons down' Al Hirshfield, artist, cartoonist 1903-2003. Over several pages it shows the work and goes into her way of working, here is an extract. 'Van Biervliet's process is to sketch and photograph wherever she goes. She approaches a potential subject from every angle, looking for subtleties in the structure around her. She will often combine ideas from two different cities or even countries, into one painting, re-creating the scene the way she sees it in her mind's eye. She describes each window or doorway as having a history and a future, and she weaves her story through theirs into her renderings'

The book can be found on Amazon at
www.amazon.co.uk/Art-Crayon-Color-Resist-Sculpt/dp/1631591010.
