ABOUT PHOEBE STRINGER

Circular profile image of artist, Phoebe Stringer, a white woman in her 20s with light brown, chin length hair with a fringe and big glasses with clear frames. Image surrounded with a peach coloured snake illustration.

Phoebe Stringer (she/her) is a multidisciplinary fine artist, creating incredible hand embroidered scenes inspires by 1990s computer game environments. Based in Dalston in London, where she was born and raised, Stringer grew up surrounded by art and later studied at Slade school of fine art (MFA). Although working in embroidery is a medium so far removed from the digital construction of the computer games she pulls inspiration from, she masterfully uses appliqué and various embroidery methods to mimic a pixilated effect. Phoebe is able to transport you into a world that feels familiar to those of us who grew up playing the retro video games of the 90s, while also creating artworks that are entirely unique.
