B-Movie Bags creator Julia Griffin is a Freelance Artist based in Ayrshire, Scotland. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA(Hons) in Textile Design then after a year on the Central St Martins MA Fashion course came back to Scotland to work as a Visual Arts Officer for North Ayrshire's Education Department. A passion for Classic Horror, B-Movie imagery & a love of all things vintage led her to 'B-Movie Bags'. . .
B-Movie Bags is quite simply an homage to the Illustrative Artists of the 30's, 40's, 50's & 60's whose work often appeared on the Horror & B-Movie genre advertising posters of Universal Studios, RKO Radio & many others. Julia has selected a number of her favourite film posters from across these decades to hand paint on to great vintage handbags from the same era. The bags & images are thoughtfully paired together & hand painted using a good quality leather paint for a professional & durable finish. The result is a surprisingly authentic, functional & totally unique piece of Pop Art. . .
Julia is currently exploring ways to publicise, exhibit & ultimately sell her B-Movie Bag Collection. Any individual, Curator or Retail Buyer interested in the work should contact her via her email address. All other enquiries or editorial interest are also most welcome . . .
