Livvy King is a British contemporary artist based in London. She has had a keen interest in the human form and its movement, developing her style through own exploration and courses such as drawing from life with the English National Ballet in 2018 and 2020.
Livvy uses personal experiences to inject emotion into her paintings, meaning each piece of work has an individual story behind it. Her more recent work has been influenced heavily from her time working as a respiratory physiotherapist on ICU, in a central London hospital.
Her main medium is ink, in which she explores colours and techniques to capture the desired mood for each piece. More recently Livvy has been adding mixed media to her dancers to capture the movement of fabric and has also been experimenting acrylic paint, producing studies of nudes in vibrant colour.
