Press Release: Zoe Camper LLC
Recognized by the Las Vegas Review Journal as one of the artists’ most likely to 'break out' in 2022, Zoë did not disappoint. Her solo show at Core Contemporary Gallery of Fine Art was a massive success with great attendance, and many pieces sold to new and existing local collectors. On display were Zoë’s labor intensive highly-detailed drawings in which she explores storytelling, friendship, pattern-making, and cryptography.
‘About last night. Wow!! We extend a hearty congratulations, @zoeacamper , on such an important show!! We'll have to confirm the count against our records, but we estimate Zoë sold 26 works from the show and many small pieces in our retail space. At 5-figures worth of sales for just this show, we definitely count this as a highpoint on which to end our already very successful year. Thank you, ALL!’ - Nancy Good (Core Contemporary owner/curator).
Zoë is already working on her next show which will be in Las Vegas in May this year.

Zoë was born in London, England. She gained an Hons Degree in 3D Design, at The Surrey Institute of Art & Design, and hold a Post Graduate Cert of Education in Design Technology, from Goldsmiths, University of London.
She has exhibited in the UK, and here in Las Vegas, where she currently lives. She mainly uses pencil, and collage as her medium. Her pieces are abstract and fantastical in nature but are always a comment on life and living, with many sources of inspiration. She generally draws characters or feelings in landscapes, both real, and made up, from different elements like, sky, earth, water, metal structures, pipes, roads, tunnels, and other things. She combines labor intensive highly-detailed drawings with technology to explore storytelling, pattern-making and cryptography. Working on paper and fabric to create both art and artwear, she explores friendship and trust in all its forms.
'The places I draw I have called Urburain and the characters are named Callers. The Callers are speaking to us and reminding us that we are lucky, and that life, while fragile, is incredible. The series I am currently working on has the Callers from Urburain turning up in Las Vegas. The Callers emerge from underneath the resorts, bursting through the earth to tell us to enjoy things while we have time.'
Her drawings are available as limited edition professionally printed, signed, giclee prints on 200gms archive quality paper. As a prolific art-wear designer and maker, you will also see a trademark red sewn lattice on each print.
14 portraits will be on display at my solo show at Core Contemporary Gallery. The first four people were very much a part of my life in 2021. Alex my nephew, Bette a wonderful neighbour, Clare a brilliant friend from the UK, and Diana a friend who I met during our radiation treatment.
Your last chance to see and buy a piece of Zoë Camper's work. You will also be able to collect work you have purchased at the event after 7pm.
Artist and London transplant Zoë Camper’s solo show opens on Friday, Nov. 11th, 6-8pm. Camper combines labor intensive highly-detailed drawings with technology to explore storytelling, pattern-making and cryptography.
Working on paper and fabric to create both art and artwear, she explores friendship and trust in all its forms. See 14 portraits of close friends whose trust and love is without question contrasted by the accurate retelling of a story that has been encrypted to ensure it cannot be changed or manipulated, using the same encryption technique as NFTs.
Camper also presents the Las Vegas Strip in six large meticulously-drawn casino and ‘Caller’ characters, who are also protected by their own unique cryptographic signatures. This really is a must-see show, in terms of pure originality and dedication to a practice.
Original works and limited-edition prints available for purchase starting at $150.00
