“Unskilled Worker is one of Generation Instagram’s most in-demand artists — no wonder Gucci has tapped her up for a white-hot new collaboration
The Sunday Times Style Magazine / September 2017
“An art-world darling… Downie's work is imbued with a powerful magic that feels difficult to capture, let alone to control and express. Hers is the story of how we learn to glimmer and shine, even in strange circumstances.
“Fashion’s tastemakers have adopted her with gusto.
“Her work is some of the most intensively beautiful and poetic painting I have come across, the eyes in the faces she paints are absolutely mesmerising.
“What I really appreciated of Unskilledworker’s style is a sort of fabled ingenuity she injects in her illustrations. I was captured instantly upon seeing her Instagram. I love her and what she does.
