Tilly Pegrum is a visual artist born in Norway. She moved to Manchester, UK, to study fine art and art history at Manchester School of Art
before coming to Lisbon.
Her work is about people, rooted in a fascination and a fear of human behaviour. Losing her mum at the age of 17, her art captures the dual state of being a grieving child and a blossoming woman. The body functions as a carrier of sensitivity and it unfolds truths about nearness and isolation.
