Victoria Topping graduated from the University of the West of England in 2008 with a degree in Illustration and is now an internationally recognised artist and illustrator. With more than a decade of professional experience, Victoria has held solo exhibitions across the UK and Europe.
With an ever-evolving creative practice that fuses digital and traditional techniques, Victoria has created a distinct visual language in her work, incorporating vivid colour, bold forms and recurring motifs. Predominantly known for her printmaking, and one-off multimedia works that sit at the interface of collage and painting.
Victoria's work is heavily influenced by music, from the styling and art direction of 1970s Jazz and Soul to the passion and ebullience of Gospel and Disco. She takes musical aspects and works to synthesize them into visual form, working towards distilling the vibrancy of music into a ‘music for the eyes’ whilst leaning on her passions for everything from exotic flora and fauna to traditional folk art – Victoria’s work achieves a synthesis that is at once both unique and familiar.
Her singular style has caught the eye of many businesses, and she’s carried out branding, illustration and graphic briefs for numerous festivals, nightclubs, wine producers and record labels.
In 2019 Victoria Topping illustrated her first book, Mythologica, which was awarded children’s non-fiction book of the year on Amazon. She is Artistic Director for On the Corner Records, an award winning independent record label based in London. Victoria currently lives and works in Bath, South West England.
