    Not just your average life drawing session - we’re delighted to announce that we will be working with the highly esteemed Liberty Antonia. She works with mediums of drawing, text and moving image to explore issues of 21st century body politics, with a focus on the experience of living in a female body in a ‘photo-shopped’ world; the new visual rhetoric of perfection through digital manipulation. Working within a socio-political context, her work uses character and playfulness to discuss themes of food, ‘femininity’ and sexuality. Get ready for a thought-provoking session!

    Who and Why?

    MYO London founders Sam Lehane and Diana Muendo

    The Team

    Co-Founders: Sam and Diana

    M.Y.O was born on a chilly New Year's day walk, as we pondered how nice it would be to have a place where we could chill out, finish our colouring books, maybe try out some some painting, even learn pottery...without household distractions (no tempting laundry!) or needing to buy lots of materials.

    We are both accountants - and true to the stereotype, our arts and crafts abilities were hardly extensive... but, we found creating and getting our hands dirty SO unbelievably relaxing, we had to share this experience with more people! In an increasingly digital age, we reckon lots of people, like us, want a tech-free place to unwind and what better way than by experimenting and making something cool.

    This is what M.Y.O is all about. We hope M.Y.O inspires you, helps you relax, unlocks your creativity and most of all, is a lot of fun!
