Priced Out by Tinsel Edwards
Written by artist Tinsel Edwards, Priced Out is a personal and powerful look at the declining state of housing in the capital through the eyes of an artist. A first-hand account of the London housing crisis, Tinsel traces the high rises in cost of rented accommodation, the spiralling property prices, and skewers the reasons why artists, who contribute – like so many others – so much to the character, wellbeing and uniqueness of London life, are being priced out of the city.
Tinsel Edwards has exhibited across the UK and in Germany, Austria, Poland and America. She has worked with The Art Conference, Jealous Gallery, Pure Evil Gallery, The Art Car Boot Fair, and Galerie Michaela Stock in Vienna, amongst others, and has also produced work for Banksy’s Dismaland.

‘Tinsel has written a valuable social document… Priced Out reads like a dispatch from a war zone. Which, in a way, it is.”
Martin Newell, East Anglian Daily Times
‘An important voice to a problem that isn’t going away any time soon”
