Sevven is an interdisciplinary artist that lives and works in Birmingham.
Her practice takes form using predominately photographic mediums.
The aesthetic of her works are heavily influenced by pre-contemporary art, in particular the symbolism involved with vanitas, memento mori, Dutch still life and the work of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood. The ideologies focus on linking mortality and memory into narratives, using her own experiences and cultural differences to sculpt themselves into the product of her works.
