Sikelela ‘Ziggy’ Owen (b. 1984) is a London based painter whose ephemeral works elevate emotional essentialism; both in her choice of subject and in her use of paint, she strips away all external noise and focuses intimately only on what matters. Owen studied at Royal Academy Schools and recent solo exhibitions include Together at James Freeman Gallery, London; Supper, Sleep and Sorrow at LdM Gallery, Florence and Love, Eat , Sleep, Repeat at HSBC Space, London. She is the recipient of the 2011 Dover Streets Arts club award and in 2020 her work was shortlisted for the John Moores Painting Prize. Owen has works in both the Robert Hiscox and HG Capital collections in London.
