The Line Girl

Filipino, b.1992

The Line girl is a queer multidisciplinary artist that uses collage, drawing, installation and performance to explore the infinite subject of ‘Lines’. Having a wide range of exploration within her work, she still holds onto the consistently deliberate and organic fluent notion of the linear structure , which is pivotal to her ongoing exploration of a ‘simple’ subject.

BIOGRAPHY

The Line Girl was born in Baguio City, Philippines. Growing up in the mountain region of Philippines and moving to a seaside town in Scotland, with the big cultural and city to town change she soon found herself moving to the richly multicultural city of London for University and where she now currently resides and works.

 

She studied Photography at University, during which she developed and created her year long project and the start of her exploration of lines, ‘The Line Book’. A concertina book consisting of photos taken every day for a year, with each photograph having a consistent line flowing through it.

 

During the period of ‘The Line Book’, The Line Girl went to study for a semester at École supérieure d’Art de Grenoble, France. Documenting her time in a new country with new friends and experiences through ‘The Line Book’, she also began to understand the importance of including her personal relationships and experiences into her work. Thanks to her new art study environment she was encouraged to continue with the subject of lines and soon developed and created her organic line structures. 

 
During her time studying she also worked as an artist assistant and studio manager, continuing this work until she proceeded to independently work on her own practice. Starting with creations on paper, The Line Girls’ work started to take a turn into larger and more immersive pieces when she moved to a community filled with creatives, where she also had the freedom to create what she could within her room and surrounding area. Here she also began to explore more cross collaborations with others in the area, removing limitations to her practice.

 

The Line Girl is a firm believer that art should belong to everyone and that her pieces be accessible to as many people as possible. Painting murals, she creates artwork that is available to the public and with body painting she invites people to be their own artwork.

 
With personal experiences and representation being an important aspect of her work, Line girl creates illustrations that highlight and celebrate queer women, mental health and includes aspects of her own personal life into her work.

 

The Line Girls work can be seen at various bars, restaurants and public spaces throughout London in the form of large murals. She has created work for The Other Art Fair, Tik Tok, Jägermeister, Netflix, Patrón Tequila alongside several venues and brands across the UK.
