Inspired – Johanna Goodman

The collages by the American artist Johanna Goodman are incredible – elaborate, peculiar in the style and rich of details.

her works revolves around the concept of the creation of “Imaginary beings“, they remind me a sort of elegant sculptural paper dolls.

You can also find her on Instagram, and purchase her prints following this link.

Here’s another stack of works done a few months ago from the series “Mongolfiere” (Hot-air Balloons).

Mongolfiere (Hot-Air Balloons) is a sketchbook filled with altered vintage portraits ready to fly. I wanted to imagine the extension of each photo as an imaginary abstract world. Each subject represents a floaty and colourful balloon that walks freely into time and space.

See the whole collection below and let me know what do you think!

Inspired – Maliheh Zafarnezhad

I have been lucky enough to have met in person Maliheh Zafarnezhad in her studio. She is an incredible talent and also an amazing woman. Maliheh is Iraninan and Irish, and her photo transfer collages are a celebration of her rich multicultural history.

These are a small selection of her latest works on wood blocks and ceramic plates. they are part of her series The New Normal and Objects Of Memories. I enjoy these sculptural explorations of her style. Go check her website and Instagram to see more of her works (the pieces on canvas are also stunning!).

You can also find her on Saatchi Art.

Some Of My Works 72

This is a mini series created for the Februllage challenge on Instagram, I had so much fun making them ūüôā

For this project I used vintage and new paper cuts, combined with acrylic pens and dotty stickers for the decorations. The whole collection is on sale in my website, enjoy!

About the series
‚ÄúFebrullage‚ÄĚ is an online challenge organised during February 2021 from the Scandinavian Collage Museum and Edinburgh Collage Collective. The project was to create every day of the month a piece following up a specific daily topic, using your personal collage technique. I wanted to give to this challenge a go, mixing up my decorating style with some paper cut interventions.

These 2 pieces are the biggest one created for my ongoing series “Gentlewomen“. They are vintage portraits on wood panel, but here I just used pens for the whole painting and decoration.

The pictures are both the portrait of the same woman, so I thought to create a “twin” decoration, where patterns are repeated in both pieces with some small variants.

They are available in my website into the collection “Art on Wood“.

It’s been a while!

Here’s a batch of fresh new works that I am currently working on. I really enjoy to use wood panels and boards lately, and I think that the mixture of vintage portraits and wood gives a magic final touch to each piece.

Moreover, I can magnify the images to create an abstract patterned space around each subject. These works are part of the series “Gentlemen” and “Gentlewomen“.

For these pieces I used a vintage photo attached to a wood panel as a starting point. Then I decorated them using acrylic and gel pens, some of them also have gouache painting in the background.

You can find the whole collection available in my website.

Zoom Live Art Classes – Book Your Session

Hello everyone!

I have been able to sort this out, and I have some Zoom live art classes bookings available for you.
Due to these uncertain times, I thought that this could be a good solution to continue to have my creative sessions, even if in a brand new format.

I love to connect with the community and miss a lot to teach and share my passion for art.
Overall I think that this solution will be ideal for many people abroad that wanted to take part of my London events, but could’t be physically here.
Now I can finally reach out everyone in the world ūüôā

Below you can see the¬†first 2 classes, I tried to pick a morning and evening session, but please leave me a feedback if you don’t find a date/timeframe suitable for your needs.¬†I will¬†try to adjust when possible, thanks for your patience!

Curtis Talwst Santiago – Infinity Series

Amazing!

With Infinity Series the Canadian-Trinidadian artist Curtis Talwst Santiago makes a clear statement. This body of work is composed of miniature sceneries carefully handcrafted inside vintage jewellery boxes.

Most of the themes covered by the artist have a sociopolitical background like refugees on boats, police brutality assaults or completely burned houses.
