Elizabeth Waggett is a fine artist who produces highly skilled artworks which are printed onto 308gsm Hahnemuhle cotton rag paper and are hand finished with 24 carat gold. Her work questions the value that contemporary society places on culturally devoid items.
Ego shows a human skull depicted precisely drawn, which is set against a shining gold leaf circle. The question is what is valuable in life and what is it we are striving for. This artwork suggests that, the pursuit of ego is leading mankind to lose sight of what is vitally important, the value of human relationships.

About the artist
Elizabeth Waggett’s free-spirited portrayals of animals, skulls, and personal trinkets explore the profound relationship between value and purpose in consumer driven society.
Employing skilled, fine art techniques, Waggett draws her subjects in stripped-back monochrome, adding streaks of shimmering, gold leaf. In the contrast between opulence and simplicity, Waggett’s work represents the inner struggle to balance materialism and meaning, turning each piece into a social commentary that challenges the viewer to confront the impact of mining the world for precious natural resources.
Waggett’s drawings and editions have been exhibited around the world. She has had solo shows in NYC, LA, Abu Dhabi, and Manchester, and has presented her work at art fairs in Basel, Miami, New York, London, Hong Kong, Zurich, Brussels, Houston, and Paris. She was commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales in collaboration with the Prince’s Trust 50th Anniversary and has worked for luxury brands including Saks, Soho House, and SLS Hotels. She holds an honours degree in Fashion and a postgraduate in Design from the University of Manchester.
