Iya Gallery is a collection of mindfully created abstract ink and watercolour paintings and prints by London based artist Emilie Van Camp.

Emilie Van Camp founder and artist behind Iya Gallery creates minimal and abstract ink and watercolour paintings and prints inspired by wabi-sabi aesthetics: simplicity and tranquillity. Her artworks reflect a meditative flow state.

The essence of her minimal work is inspired by two of the main characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic:

Kanso - simplicity

Seijaku - tranquility

With every brush stroke reflecting her state of mind and each movement becoming a meditative gesture, she follows a slow and intuitive process hoping to bring some serenity and calmness into one's home.

  • 'Emilie's beautiful spirit and connection with nature, life, meditates along the canvas when her creations come to life. They are part whimsical yet contemplative, and with such works, it may perhaps only be seen in its entire intention by those who seek such serene complexity in their every day. It reminds me of the monks inhabiting temples, offering their services and wisdom to those who come and are ready." Satsuki Shibuya - Artist, poet and spiritual thinker.

  • “I have three artworks from Emilie - two watercolour prints and a bespoke ink-work commission. Like all of Emilie’s creations, I find them immensely beautiful and incredibly soothing. I could gaze at them for hours, and I love how they’re open to personal interpretation - to me they speak of nature, water, rocks, mountains and deep fjords. They instantly transport me to a much calmer place away from daily stresses and strains, and they’re some of the most treasured pieces in my home.” Abi Dare - Stylist, photographer and interior design blogger.

  • "Emilie's art is a call to go inwards and find that peace we all crave in a world that always asks “more” from us. To me, her simplicity has the complexity of having figured out how to put that feeling into paper. The strokes, the quality of her art and her timeless pieces means they will always have a place in my minimal home." Mar - Founder of The Extraordinaries.
