Hello Kitty Collage paintings

Another fun project. I have always loved Hello Kitty and was looking for an opportunity to use her in some paintings.

Vintage Blocks at Articles and Frames - Brooklyn Mall Pretoria

Some photos of my Vintage Blocks at Articles and Frames. This is an amazing gallery and gift shop in Brooklyn Mall Pretoria.
My blocks and prints are displayed inside an old retro style kitchen cupboard.
I think they look quite at home there :)

Paper Doll Paintings

I made these 4 paintings for an exhibition at Duncan Yard Gallery. The exhibition opens this Friday at 18h00. It is a group exhibition with 20 artists and all artwork sells for R500 or less.
It was so much fun doing the "Vespa Girl" paintings that I stuck to the idea of working with pattern paper. This time I gave it a retro feeling with images from Burda Magazines dating back to 1970.
