This is a portrait of a young African woman that I have painted part realistically and combined that with sections that are painted more loosely. Sections of the portrait have been deconstructed into simple shapes which have then been rotated to new positions. Some of those shapes have been painted white to form an overlaying design to harmonise with the portrait as a whole.
My style is born out of my passion for abstract art movements such as Bauhaus, suprematism, constructivism, futurism and a handful of others. I also have an interest in past architectural styles such as brutalism and deconstrcuctivism through to the modern designs of architects such as Zaha Hadid. My designs go through a deliberate process of abstraction over a period of weeks while the painting itself is an exercise in controlled precision also taking a number of weeks and sometimes months to complete.
