Q&A with Victoria Topping

Victoria Topping has worked as an artist and illustrator since graduating with a BA in Illustration in 2008. Her pieces are created through building up multiple textures and images and combining these to develop a distinct visual language, using recurring motifs. 
Her work is heavily influenced by music, from the styling and art direction of 1970s Jazz and Soul to the passion and ebullience of Gospel and Disco. Victoria takes musical aspects and work to synthesise them into visual form, working towards distilling the vibrancy of music into a ‘music for the eyes’. More broadly, she aims to impregnating her work with its own unique soul, through harnessing a blend of spirituality, culture, the cosmos and mother earth.
She also designed our Signature Polkadot on our PolkaPants!
