About the Artwork: Inspired by the myriad of fashion advertisements that pervade the streets of London, Iona sought to create a dynamic composition evocative of a billboard layered with posters, which have been ripped in areas to reveal the visuals underneath. This painting is about the dirty glamour, its gritty yet provocative and has an overwhelming sensual magnetism.
