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!).
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.
These 4 are the last pieces that I have done so far from my series on wood panels Gentlemen and Gentlewomen. They are all big pieces on a 40 cm circular board, and available for sale in my website. Enjoy!
“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.
