Rose Cunningham, a Glasgow based artist and illustrator has consistently use her art to emphasise the concept of cultural exchange, social issues and development.
Recently, Cunningham’s unique skillset came to the forefront at a multicultural ceilidh, which was organised by Migrant Voice Glasgow March 26, 2023. She engaged in live drawing throughout the event, translating attendees’ emotions and reactions into vibrant graphic art. This creative addition enriched the overall atmosphere of the gathering.
Cunningham's art vividly recreated attendees' actions and excitement in real-time, accurately capturing their emotions and the event's ambiance. Her work not only brought joy but also created a sense of shared humour amongst participants as they viewed the evolving artwork.
One striking aspect of Cunningham's live art is its interactive nature. As she followed the unfolding event, capturing various occurrences, the attendees could see themselves reflected in her work. This added an engaging and personal dimension to the overall experience.
