Helen Harper

Helen Harper is a London-based street artist and PhD researcher who channels her turbulent mental health journey into murals, charcoal realism, biro surrealism and skin art. Having been sectioned multiple times, her art hangs in several acute psychiatric wards around the UK and Helen aims to promote healing within her work, turning institutional walls into galleries of hope and understanding. This Upfest marks Helen’s 10th anniversary as a street and realism artist.
