Artist and the first in the UK to work with augmented reality technology

Scarlett Raven is a 29 year old British artist living in England.

She is the first painter in the UK to work with Augmented Reality technology. With a degree in Art from Central Saint Martins, she is one of the youngest artists to have had a solo exhibition in London’s esteemed Cork Street Galleries, entitled 'Seascape', in 2008, the exhibition attracted media and collectors attention. Since graduating in 2009, Scarlett has participated in a number of group shows across London, and enjoyed another two successful solo shows: 'Paint' in Hackney’s Printhouse gallery in 2010 and 'Flight' in 2012, again on Cork Street. Scarlett's latest solo exhibition "The Eleventh Hour" is in Mayfair on Bruton Street at the Castle Gallery. She has teamed up with the British Royal Legion to emphasise the importance of remembrance during the centenary and the magical symbolism of the poppy. In 2016 Raven created a painting called One In Four to coincide with MIND’s 70th Anniversary and National Mental Health Awareness Week 16-22 May.
Scarlett is preparing for a major new UK exhibition in 2016 called The Danger Tree.
