Emma Rios

International paper artist. London

Emma Rios
Based in London Bridge, Emma Rios is an illustrator, set designer and stylist whose image-making skills aren’t only to be found on the flat page. As well as illustrating with pen and ink, she also builds pictures, scenes and sets for her clients using paper and a variety of props.

When it comes to set design, her biggest inspirations are the bizarre and colourful film The Holy Mountain by Alejandro Jodorowsky, and she’s also influenced by the kaleidoscopic scenes in Busby Berkeley musicals. Recent trips to Mexico and India have pushed her towards more colourful artwork, and she’s always looking for new things to inspire her and trying out fresh ideas.

Training

Emma has a BA in Illustration from Middlesex, and an MA in the subject from Kingston University.

Approach

Emma's sets are built out of paper, and then works with a photographer to capture them, ensuring the use of light and shadow brings out the three-dimensional aspect of the work. Where she does use her drawing skills for a client's project, she works with ink.

Styles

One of her main styles involves cutting out and constructing scenes and silhouettes, but Emma also does traditional drawing and likes to try a new style every year. Most recently she’s been looking at styling food in bizarre ways.
