I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing…In Perfect Harmony. Completed 07/02/18

This piece is 20x 16” (50 x 40cm) and is oil on board.  I am also in the process of painting a smaller piece in similar vein.  Same background but the blonde is walking away, swigging from her Coke bottle.  More of that later, hopefully.    I have been painting on deep canvasses recently which do not need framing, but sometimes a white modern tray frame can really add to an artwork, hence these new paintings on board.   I have a great local framer and he and I are coming up with some great ideas. This piece is inspired by the Street art of @brknwrld who I came across on Instagram.  His work is eye catching and thought provoking and I have his permission to use this one street art as a background to my trademark woman. I liked the idea of the Molotov cocktails being served up by a masked waiter.  My cool blonde is raising her Coke to him, almost high fiveing him.  Why not? The thinking behind my art at the moment is that the 3 dimensional woman changes the dynamics of the 2 dimensional street art on the wall, bringing art to life and vice…

Untitled new work in progress. 25/01/18

I came across the work of @brknwrld on Instagram and was drawn to one particular piece called Enjoy Your Cocktails.  I felt I could make something good involving it and have the artist’s permission to use it.  The red version I saw and liked seems to have been a mock up on canvas for the final stencil on a door in Grenoble, I think.  Brkn/wrld describes himself as an Artist of Chaos and it’s worth a look at his Instagram page. A very clever and inventive artist. My take as always, is to add in my trademark woman to make a completely different composition.  By placing a 3 dimensional figure in  the vicinity of the 2 dimensional street art, the work of art is changed significantly.  The art is brought to life and vice versa. So the waiter is offering his tray of Molotov Coca Cola Cocktails, and my young blonde is almost high fiving him with her Diet Free Coke, or maybe just wants to put her bottle on his tray.  Who knows? I am loving painting in this style.  Living on North Street in Bristol I am privileged to see extraordinary Street art every year on my street,…

‘Lennon’ completed. 17/01/2018

This work was a commissioned piece by a very dear friend of mine who has an aggressive ongoing illness.  I am not sure what will happen to this work, but I don’t think I could bear to sell it.   Maybe it will stand alone as an artwork showing what I am about with my art. I have the permission of the street artist Kobra to paint this work based on a wonderful colourful piece of his street art painted here in Bedminster where I live. My apologies for a short blog this week.  I am very sad just now. Please read the last blog for more info on this work. 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, Instagram and have a Facebook page called Miche Artist as well as my usual Facebook page.
