‘America has Lichtenstein, we have Azzopardi.’

Solo show by Deborah Azzopardi launches in

London’s Cork Street

On 31 March, The Cynthia Corbett Gallery launches

the first solo UK show of originals and limited

editions by Deborah Azzopardi. World-renowned

for the distinctive pop-art images she has been

producing for the past 25 years, Azzopardi will

present over 20 works in the exhibition, each one a

flirtatious, fantastical depiction of a carefree

glamorous life.

Thanks to the popularity of her published images in

the global marketplace, Azzopardi’s work is familiar

to millions of people internationally, such

recognition similar to that enjoyed by the Chinese

Girl in the 50s and 60s by Vladimir Trechikoff.

Published by Rosenstiel's, her images appear in

IKEA internationally and many diverse retailers in

over 50 countries throughout the world. Her

originals are now sought-after by serious

international collectors and sell for tens of thousands of pounds. Early works have been sold

through Bonhams and Christie’s.

Azzopardi’s distinctive, colourful, cartoon-like scenes reference her early career as an artist for

Disney, an experience that she credits with developing her skill, craft and precision. Her voyeuristic

images starring a host of glamorous women embrace the comedy of turbulent relationships,

seductions, fantasies.

Deborah Azzopardi’s work will be presented by The Cynthia Corbett Gallery at the Gallery in Cork

Street from 31 March to 5 April 2014.
