Q&A with Lauren Schultz - Featured artist at 5x5 exhibition.

Lauren Schultz, artist and owner of Jhb based illustration and design studio, Says Who, spends her days drawing things, eating things and hanging out with her dogs. Add brown paper packages tied up with string, and you have four of her favourite things. She can also be found binge watching series, obsessing over what she’s reading at the moment, or losing at Magic:The Gathering.


We sent her through a Q&A so that you could get to know her lovely mind a little better. 


Name: Lauren Schultz


Occupation: Illustrator & graphic designer


What inspired your artworks for 5x5: There was no set theme, so I just did what I love most. I’ve always loved old biographical illustrations, and drawing stuff that could be found in the natural world.


What mediums did you use: Pigment markers and bronze paint markers


What are you  listening to: Leon Bridges, Howlin’ Wolf, Hozier, George Ezra and The 1975. All at once.


What are you watching: Mr.Robot. On repeat.


What are you reading:Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon. First time though.


What is your favourite English word: Clementine. Proper noun. Although I feel it’s origin might be French. 


Best Back Street Boy and Why? I think I might come to regret this answer, but I have to go with Nick Carter. He’s the only one I can remember right now.


Lauren’s works are now available for purchase on our site here: as well as in-store at our gallery space at Fallen Heroes at 53 6th Street Parkhurst, Johannesburg.
