Bio: Bio

Amelia Tovey is a painter, animator, and experimental filmmaker b.1997 and currently based in Newcastle upon tyne, UK. 


I'm a figuartive painter interested in exploring themes of intimatism, nostalgia and finding joyous and peaceful moments in the context of this era of crisis and urgency. 

Currently I'm working on a collection exploring identity and narrative, particularly artists and creatives working jobs in the hospitality industry, striving towards so-far unrealised dreams.  I've also been working on album artwork and moving image commissions for artists such as Igwe Aka, Wiseboy Jeremy, Queenie Lasoul and Jamo. 

In July 2022, I graduated from MA Character Animation at CSM, where my final year film was nominated for a Mullenlowe NOVA  award, and was screened at Horse hospital, London along with films from my talented coursemates.  

My film was also exhibited in a group show of moving image artists with WCCD at Brew, Hull from 1st - 15th July 2022. 


I graduated from BA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins in June 2020, where I was nominated for a Maison/0 award and two pieces from my graduate collection were acquired by UAL's permanent art collection. View our class of 2020 graduate showcase here.

Throughout August 2020, my painting 'Ophelia: A Watery End' was featured on a billboard in Camden by Tate Collective, made in response to the UK government backing anti-refugee bills and the inprisonment of those who help refugees lost or drowning at sea. 

Other work while studying includes directing and animating a documentary sting Lockdown Diaries for London International Animation Festival (screened November 2021 at the Barbican Centre) and an animated advert for UK charity, The Children's society (unreleased).

I've illustrated two books: the first, 'Growing So Well & Other Poems' written by Sunita Edirisooriya and self-published in August 2020. The second is children's book The Grumpy Lion written by Gillian Vessey and self-published in December 2020.
