Biography / Pam Glew

At the age of 18, Pam Glew, who played in various rock bands as a teenager, made the decision to discontinue making music and focused on becoming an artist instead. Now, British born Glew who grew up in northern Cornwall is a recognized and established artist, well known for her unique technique of using bleach on vintage garments and flags. Pam Glew’s work can be found on her collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/5 in 2014.

Painting freehandedly and working with mixed media, Glew uses dye and bleach to deconstruct and distress vintage textiles. Her take on re-interpreting symbols of representation and heritage, like the American flag, on which she paints portraits of women emerging from the fabric, explore questions surrounding women rights and their role as minorities in the history of art as well as how identity is constructed. The artist, who attended art college and was heavily influenced by film and pop-cultural icons, has risen to fame by working with global brands like Red Bull and Armani and gets commissioned by heavyweights of the music, film and art scene.
