Olly and Suzi, Olly Williams and Suzi Winstanley, are two British artists who specialise in collaborative painting of wildlife.

Biography[edit]

Olly and Suzi originally began working together after meeting as students at Saint Martin's School of Art in 1987,[1] and graduated together with a joint degree.[2] Their collaborative mode of working became established during a scholarship to Syracuse University in New York State during the period 1988 to 1989.[3]

Since 1993, they have taken part in more than 50 expeditions to remote regions of the Earth to paint predators and prey at close proximity in their natural habitats.[3] In some works they solicit "assistance" from the subject in the form of pawprints or bite-marks.[2] Their joint work has been exhibited internationally in galleries including the Simon Dickinson[4] and Briggs Robinson[5] galleries in New York, and the Natural History Museum in London.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Winstanley currently lives with English musician Damon Albarn with whom she has a child.
