Plants were here first

Bryony&Bloom is an award-winning studio interested in the human connection to natural environments. It was founded in 2013 by artist and curator Bryony Benge-Abbott, to create immersive oil paintings, murals & surface pattern designs that celebrate biodiversity & re-wild urban landscapes.

Whether adorning public walls, designing surface patterns or playing with oils in the studio, the Bryony&Bloom aesthetic is a combination of striking colour palettes with intriguing pattern details imbued with symbolism. The result is visual storytelling that is bold, unique and up-lifting.
