Absolut Vintage. Absolut Psychedelic. Absolut Chrissie Abbott
Artist, designer, art director, Birchinton-on-sea

Chrissie Abbott is an artist and illustrator who is the brain behind some major corporate visuals and ad campaigns, ranging from MTV to Vans; as well as artworks for the electro pop star Little Boots.
Her works collage different elements, often vintage-feel snapshots of mushrooms, birds or curly hair – blended in a psychedelic signature style with unusual fonts, bright colors and70′ s objects. The results are amazingly fantastical compositions which we cant have enough of – not only because they are truly moodlifting.
Especially in times of less sunshine, a scroll through her oh-so-bright Instagram feed does wonders – try.

In the art world currently I find most exciting that…

More and more female artists are able to have a voice and a platform, the game is changing and it’s great.

Number of unanswered mails in your account today…
ZERO, hooray! This doesn’t count unanswered emails from other days though right?

My perfect working outfit…
Anything warm & soft at the moment because it’s freezing; hoodies, slippers, jeans. I work from home so don’t have to worry about making a good impression so I basically dress like a teenage skater boy.

My favourite new brand discovery…

LF Markey.

My everyday online art read is…
It’s nice that, the design kids, the visual melt.

Your necessary extravagance is…
Staying in nice places when I’m away. I’m not super fancy or anything but I love a nice hotel or decent Air Bnb. I just really mentally need to stay somewhere clean, you know?

Most ridiculous thing you ever bought…
An orange silk jumpsuit that I couldn’t afford, that I’ve also never worn because it really doesn’t suit me. I think I was probably hungover when I bought it.

My ultimate secret after long working hours…
Probably just eating weird snacks and stalking people on the internet whilst I procrastinate.

Favourite collaboration of the art- and fashion world…
Samantha Pleet’s collaboration with Maria-Ines Gul Stella McCartney & Will Sweeney.

My favourite hashtag…

I only use hashtags when I absolutely have to, so I don’t have a favourite.

On my office table I always have…

A glass of water. Hydration is key.

The most arty city is…
Paris or New York.
