ome people will look at the cover of our October 2017 issue and think they have found a Halloween costume. That’s fine, to each their own. We look at the October 2017 cover and see a rising star in the art world, the work of London-based Polly Nor. Polly has had an exceptional year, bookended already by her brilliant solo show in London this summer, “It’s Art, Mum, Look It Up.” Through drawings and now installation works, Polly is our artist-of-the-moment, making relevant, poignant and accessible messages that capture the moment we live in.
