Oska Lappin

Oska Lappin was born on the Pacific North West coast of America and spent the first ten years of her life submerged in the hippy counterculture. Resurfacing, her formative years were spent in New England and East Coast cities. Oska’s foremost influences come from comics, punk, Hitchcock, and German Expressionism. Her work is often described as being somewhere between George Grosz and Robert Crumb; hard-bitten and dirty. She bought a one-way ticket to London and settled in Hackney in 1993 and has lived on the South Coast for the past 18 years, which she finds to be a constant source of inspiration.
