About the Artwork:
“The Ride is a symbol of life’s smaller and bigger challenges. The journey can be difficult, exciting, awful, interesting, terrifying, and maybe even fun now and then! It’s not for the faint-hearted (we’re all strong!). It’ll make you grow and learn, that’s for sure.” – Natalie Foss
About the Artist:
Natalie Foss is a Norwegian freelance illustrator and artist currently based in London. She graduated with a Bachelor degree in illustration from Kingston university in 2013, and draws primarily with coloured pencils on paper, focusing on bold colours, patterns and emotions.
Natalie works in different fields, from personal projects to commercial commissions. In her drawings she mixes the flat, almost graphic, with the 3-dimentional and detailed – often portraying alienated beings adorned by 60s/70s inspired patterns and motifs.
She finds inspiration in the everyday life, all from thoughts and experiences, the ups and downs, to people, music, subcultures, fashion, patterns, light/shadow, and other observations.
