‘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. If you would like to be kept up to…

New Work In Progress…Aerosol. 14/02/18

I was browsing through Instagram and came across the stunning collaboration of @fanakapan and @nunovviegas.   I got in touch with both street artists to ask their permission to use one of their works in my own composition.  Once they both realised I was not directly copying their work but was using it as a background to a narrative composition they were both completely fine and thanked me for asking them.  I would imagine quite a few people copy them without asking. I am deeply interested in preserving street art which by its nature is ephemeral and gets painted over.   My own take though, is to change the dynamic of the street art by placing my trademark woman somewhere in the vicinity doing something which relates to that street art.  So a 3dimensional woman brings life to a 2dimensional street art and vice versa. This woman will be standing spraying her hair with an aerosol can of hair spray as she walks past the huge hand squeezing an aerosol can of paint.    I have to think of a title now.  Ideas welcome please. If you would like to be kept up to date with what I am up…
