Hannah Hooper is an American artist and musician based out of Los Angeles. Her work deals with a diverse array of subject matter including tragic pop culture figures, claustrophobic beach/crowd scenes and strange figures distorted through bodies of water. Hannah is almost obsessive in her ever-present need to draw. She's filled countless sketchbooks with studies of her surroundings, tours, friends/family and imaginary landscapes. As a member of Grouplove, Hannah has also taken on the role of art director for the band. Her work adorns virtually all of the albums, posters, merch and even the costume and stage design. The frenetic energy of her mark-making and line-work echoes the inspired and frenzied performances of the group.
'I can never sit still' -Hannah Hooper
After graduating with a BFA from Parson's School of Design, Hannah cut her teeth in New York's Lower East Side art scene during the 2000s, rubbing elbows with some of today's most notable younger contemporary artists. In 2008, with Christian Zucchoni at her side, Hannah traveled to Crete for an intensive painting residency, where they soon met the other members of what would become Grouplove. Hannah now resides in LA, plays music with Grouplove and maintains a robust and multi-faceted studio practice on and off tour.
