Artist Inspiration: Wangechi Mutu
On October 17, 2013 0
Wangechi Mutu’s intricate and other-worldly work has been an inspiration in the Mara Hoffman office for a while now so we are stoked that her show, “A Fantastic Journey”, is showing at the Brooklyn Museum from October through March! Wangechi comes to us from Nairobi, Kenya and her global background is evident in her trippy and borderline dark pieces that combine found materials, magazine cutouts, sculpture, and paint. We love collages, as I’m sure you know, and Wangechi’s collages are beyond. “A Fantastic Journey” brings together more than fifty pieces of her work, including large-scale collages, never before seen sketches, sculptural installations, and videos. Get over there and check it out!
Here are a few of our favorite pieces. If you are in the NYC area you should definitely pop in and grab a little inspiration!
