Pam Glew, born in 1978, is a British artist best known for her unique bleaching technique on fabric. Glew’s practice has involved painting on clothsince 2005. Initially she paints on flags with heat guns, ink and dye, and through experimentation she has developed a unique painting technique. Glew started making artwork using flags and textiles around 2007, notably 'Afghan Girl' later appeared on the front page of the ‘Le Monde’ Newspaper.
Flags, quilts and brocade are used to explore and question how identity is constructed by the countries we inhabit. Through the use of textiles; washing, dyeing and sewing cloth, along with images of women, Glew aims to highlight the minority of women in the history of art, and also the plight of women's rights.
Pam Glew has exhibited in numerous urban, traditional and site-specific exhibitions, alongside such artists as Damien Hirst, Tracy Emin and Peter Blake. She has shown in 9 major solo shows and over 100 group exhibitions in galleries, art fairs and museums worldwide. Her work continues to be collected by art buyers globally and is frequently commissioned by both large brands and private clients. She has collaborated with Terry O’Neill and Bill Wyman, and has produced commissions for Armani, Ralph Lauren, MTV, Pepe Jeans, Red Bull, and Microsoft.
