Eve De Haan, better known as Half A Roast Chicken online, is creating art that really speaks to you, literally. Well not in the sense of talking robots (because you can’t trust them) but in the sense that De Haan uses the written word to provoke and challenge through all of her art. Graduating with a degree in Theology, Eve delves into the meanings of the concepts we’ve grown to know so well. From the simple “You” to the downright enlightened “STOP LISTENING TO RUMOURS MADE UP BY COMPUTERS”, her work challenges the wavering nuances in the meanings of words so readily used in our society. From exploring expressions of femininity in ‘STOP SHOWING YOUR BOOBS’ as a sign of the aggression towards female sexuality, Eve finds neon as the perfect medium to examine concepts as well as to make people stop and take it in.
With works exhibited across the world, from the ultimate home of neon – the Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles – to working on Nike’s tights campaign, Eve De Haan is fast becoming an internet sensation. Her Instagram has over 6k followers, because who doesn’t love a bit of neon flashing up on their feeds, and she’s running her latest exhibition as we speak. Opening on the 13th February 2018 is distraction, her latest dive into dissecting the IRL to URL world, it’s an unmissable event.
