Molly Hankinson is today's A Portfolio as we continue to look at the roster of Nuart Aberdeen 2024. The UK-based artist is known for both illustration, printmaking and murals, and is originally from London and now living in Glasgow. She graduated in Fine Art: Painting and Printmaking from The Glasgow School of Art (2018), and was then the recipient of the new graduate residency at SWG3 Studios where she is now permanently based.

Molly creates honest and unapologetic representations of people and communities through an intersectional feminist lens, with unparalleled and celebratory reclamation of space evident in her work. She enjoys portraying people who are completely at ease with themselves in their own surroundings. Incorporating the aesthetics of bright and considered colour placement with use of continuous line, she creates bold and subtly detailed, inclusive celebrations that transcend, or call into question societal expectations surrounding gendered expression. Her subjects are characterised in a powerful way, which she enjoys depicting through the highlighting of shared experiences.
