Bailey Graham (born January 13, 1997) also known as Blue is a Canadian sculpture artist, entrepreneur, filmmaker and surrealist photographer. Graham currently lives in London, England and is the founder of Sun and Cedar, an art house that represents and sells her work. Graham is best known for pioneering creating hyper realistic fungi with the use of wood elements that reflects the relationship of nature and death.[1]

Born in Nova Scotia, Canada, she has the ability to inculcate a sense of awe in viewers of his art. Graham models attractive turbulent full sculptures and woodland crowns that are highly thematic. While her fame initially was for her early work mixing paintings and surrealist photography, in a short span of time, she became known for mixed media sculptures.[2][3]

From the unanticipated style of representation of antler crowns, her reputation grew, and Graham has been able to gain attention of art lovers and considered as an early preeminent sculptor of her time. Her work is often featured in photoshoots, films, major events, music videos and as well as private weddings.[4]

Apart from being an artist, Graham has been able to gain attention as an influencer especially on TikTok and able to build a massive following on her social handles. She currently works at one of the United Kingdom’s biggest film festivals, Raindance Film Festival, responsible for media as well as marketing. [5][6]

Career

In 2015, Graham started her company Sun and Cedar at the age of 18, to showcase her work. She started her career with paintings and once she started working on sculptures, it quickly gained her focus primarily on it.

Graham met a life threatening incident in 2015 and also lost someone very close in the same year. She incorporated her grief and feelings into her work in a cohesive manner, weaving together the themes she was already working with as well as her new set of sentiments.

Her art investigates the relationship that exists between death and nature. She incorporates a variety of influences into her work, and she harnesses her passion and curiosity for the unknown to elicit emotional responses from the viewer.

In 2019, she joined Raindance Film Festival, where she is responsible for creating media and marketing.
