A love of animals and a desire to preserve them led Polly to learn the skills of taxidermy, and she's been creating eerily beautiful still lives ever since. Instead of placing her creations in their natural habitats, Polly juxtaposes them with unusual and unexpected surroundings, playing with scale and perception to force viewers to see the animals as if for the first time. British born, Polly has been working and living in London since 2005. During this time her work has been featured in The Sunday Times, Harper's Bazaar, Wallpaper and Citizen K.
This week's global street art review coincides with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25th November) and central for the edition will be works revolvong around the intimate complex nature of women. It will also explore worthy walls done for Art Basel Week in Miami.
Leading off the way is this fantastic Fin Dac and Angelina Christina collaborative piece, named 'Vroom Vroom' in Williamsburg. The two artists' distinctive styles and colour palette blend in perfect harmony, making the work a true delight. Take a closer look at the close-up shots below to see for yourselves.
