Pixies on the page
When local artist Kylaasha was penniless in Europe (bad place to be broke...) and trying desperately to get back to the relative security of London, she started to draw…
“I had put myself in a very dangerous situation travelling through the depths of Europe without any money, trying to get back to London,” Kylaasha said. “It put my mind in such turmoil that I could not stop worrying. I was always on a moving train and could not stop for long enough to eat something decent, sleep in a real bed or even talk to someone. I thought I was going mad. I needed an outlet so I started drawing. Just lines, doodling – they seemed to look quite beautiful and it soothed my mind.”
A few years later and after some computer pixellation these drawings (now stencils) are part of an exhibition called Pixellated Pixies on display at Caddies Coffee Shop in Lismore until the end of January.
