About Charlotte Mann

Charlotte Mann is interested in our clutter. All those books, bicycles, musical instruments, records, paintings, lamps and mirrors that fill our lives to the brim are brilliantly re-created in graphic, life-size murals that she draws in black marker pen on the walls of people’s homes.

“I put a spotlight on the objects we surround ourselves with,” says Mann, who is based in Peckham, south London. “It’s not about shopping or aspirational objects, but about taking stock of what you have. My murals allow people to view stuff in their home in a different way to how they normally would.” (Emma Love in The Sunday Times)
