Pam Glew, is a contemporary British artist, known for her unique bleaching technique on vintage fabrics and flags. Antique American quilts, brocade and old jeans are dyed black and painted freehand with bleach. The portrait slowly develops in the painting process resulting in an image emerging from the cloth. The artist is currently working on her 4th London Solo Show entitled 'Hotel Room', using her own photography as reference to her paintings using her distinctive technique on textiles. The artist has shown worldwide in 100 group exhibitions and 6 major solo shows. The artist has collaborated with Terry O’Neill and Bill Wyman and has made portrait commissions and collaborations with Armani, Ralph Lauren, Pepe Jeans, MTV and Mitsubishi Bank.
