London-based artist Rosie McGinn is known for her unique work with video and inflatable sculptures to express her fascination with British culture. In an exhibition last year at J Hammond she crafted a hand-stuffed puppet of Paul Gascoigne ⁠— something that gained praise across the industry.

For her latest work as a part of a group exhibition called Lacuna, McGinn has taken to the canvas for a painted series called ‘Cee Deez’ inspired by the music of her teenage years. Created using watercolors and ink on paper, she has reworked classic albums like Dizzee Rascal’s Boy In Da Corner, Arctic MonkeysWhatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not, Black Eyed PeasElephunk and Destiny’s Child’s Destiny Fulfilled.

The Slugtown group exhibition hosted by Arcade is showing on Artsy and runs until July 21. 25% of all sales will be donated to The Angelou Centre, a charity in the West End of Newcastle-upon-Tyne that provides training, personal development, counselling and legal advice for Black, Asian, minority ethnic and refugee women.
