You cannot deny it – the French artist Alice De Miramon can transform everything she touches into a beautiful, colourful and powerful art piece.
I love how she uses very old vintage papers as a medium to paint over her delicate feminine subjects. She also experiments a lot, paintings on vintage objects or textiles as well. No matter where she paints, you can recognise her “fauvism” inspired touch.
My art class From Fashion Ad To Protest is now available to download. I realised that many people couldn’t attend the live sessions, so I am creating the recorded version of some of them for everyone to enjoy.
See above the class presentation, and click here to download the complete version (you will get a link by email once you made your order).
I just love the bright portraits of the American artist Tommy Mitchell. There is a huge amount of work on each piece and believe it or not, he uses acrylics for the colourful parts and ballpoint pens for the rest!
In the gallery you can also find some work in progress pics of the artist working on these paintings, so you can see how massive some of these portraits are. You can also find him on Instagram.
“Gli Strappi Sui Muri” (Tears On The Walls), is a brand new series about a personal research on memories and “history layers”. I wanted to imagine a wall where our memories (the photo) get slowly covered by time, represented by paper stripes and paint interventions. Every time we look at a picture it changes in time and space, revealing us a new layer. While we grow up, we connect with our memories in a different level, and time erodes them slowly.
Last summer I was lucky enough to see some of Sue Williams A’Court Paintings in a gallery in London.
I thought to see just small scaled drawings, but Sue works on very large scale too. The pictures online don’t give a proper scale of how big her works are, and they are so amazing! These delicate graphite landscapes are surrounded by pastel shades and a sense of retro nostalgia.
I couldn’t decide what to show in the gallery, so I picked two entire series. One is about her collages, the other one is a Series of drawings on book covers. If you love her works as I do, you can follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
