Bronwen Sleigh

Born: 1980

Born in 1980 and raised in Mid-Wales, Bronwen Sleigh received her BA from The Glasgow School of Art in 2002 and MA from the Royal College of Art, London in 2008, where she was selected for a six-week exchange to The University of Calgary, Canada. She has also worked for several prestigious arts organisations including The Royal College of Art, London, The Royal Academy Schools, London as a Print Fellow and at Edinburgh Printmakers as their etching technician and collaborating printer. Sleigh currently lives in Glasgow.

Bronwen Sleigh is a multi-disciplinary artist who takes inspiration from industrial architecture, unused and forgotten urban spaces, and environments at the edge of the city. Her work provokes an extended and considered dialogue with these spaces, which she transforms through the process of drawing, painting and printmaking. Sleigh’s work explores space rather than describing it, challenging perceptions of the ordinary by presenting it in an unfamiliar way.
