‘Molotov’ completed.

This is a small piece, 12 x 10”, 30 x 25 cm, and I painted it alongside a larger work (I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing) but with a different pose.  I used the same model, but in this work, she either hasn’t seen or has ignored, the street art waiter serving his Molotov Cocktails.  In the larger work (see previous blogs for details) the blonde was toasting the waiter.  In both paintings she prefers Coca Cola to Molotov. I was inspired by the street artist @brknwrld for this painting.  I always obtain the permission of the street artist before I incorporate their work into the background of my own composition, and then tag him or her into my Instagram page so as to bring them added publicity.  I am interested in preserving street art, but place my 3D woman in such a way that it relates to the 2D street art but also changes the dynamic of it and vice versa.  If that makes any sense..

‘Global Warming’ Black and White study

This is a small study based on the original ‘Global Warming’ painting and is in black and white with a slight touch of red on the aerosol.  Please see previous blogs to explain my thoughts on this theme. My apologies for short blog this week.  My partner has terminal aggressive cancer and I just am not able to write much today.  Hopefully next week will be better. This piece will be available through Great White Art gallery as of next week,  It is 12 x 10” and is oil on board.  It will have a black frame. If you would like to be kept up to date with what I am up to in the next few weeks please sign up for my Newsletter at the top of the Home page. I am also on Twitter and Instagram and have a Facebook page called Miche Artist.

‘Global Warming’ completed. 01/03/2018

My inspiration for this work comes from @fanakapan and @nunovviegas, two incredibly talented street artists.  I saw this piece and had the germ of an idea for a global warming painting.  Aerosols are apparently so bad for the environment but without them we wouldn’t have the wonderful street art in our cities and how would we women keep our hair in place?  Slightly tongue in cheek work this artwork. I know I would miss hugely the street art and graffiti in my home town Bristol.  Upfest (urban paint festival) takes place each year on North Street where I live.  Street Artists from all over the world descend on my street and cover every available hoarding, wall, boards etc,. with amazing art.   I know that street art by its nature is ephemeral as it gets painted over regularly and this is why I incorporate it into my own work.  I want to preserve this beautiful street art and by featuring my trademark woman somewhere in the composition, I am producing my own vision.  The 3D woman changes the 2D street art dynamic, bringing life to the street art and vice versa.
