Emily Faludy

Originally from Portsmouth, Emily received a First Class BA in Fine Art at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.

After University Emily worked in a London Gallery before spending five years living and painting in a remote area of Southern Greece, where she started seriously exploring the possibilities of the landscape in her work. In 2014 she returned to England and worked as an artist’s assistant in London before leaving to further her own career after a successful solo show at the Jeannie Avent Gallery, Dulwich.

Emily works ‘en plein air’ in oils to create vibrant, energized paintings which reflect her love for, and connection with, the landscape. She is most inspired by 20th century and contemporary painters who explore painterly surfaces such as Auerbach, Kossoff and George Rowlett.

She has been included in many group shows including at the Cass Art Space in London, Artspace Portsmouth and the Lightbox Gallery, Woking.  In 2021 she was shortlisted for the Jackson’s Painting Prize and was chosen by Maggi Hambling as her winning artist at the plein air painting event ‘Paint Out Norfolk’. In 2022 she participated in a painting residency at ‘Create Space Wales’ in Carmarthenshire. In 2023 put on a solo show in the Lightbox, Woking.

She is an elected member of the Chelsea Art Society, and has spent this year on the ‘Turps Banana’ Art School Correspondence Course. She is represented by the Tregony Contemporary Gallery in Cornwall.
