In the paintings presented at the Fountain Art Fair, Helene Mukhtar strives to reconnect with the spontaneity and freedom of her inner child while celebrating the resilience and strength of the human spirit. In this latest work she concentrates on acrylic paint and explores textures, thickness and brush strokes combined with an energetic and pulsating color palette.
Her cheerful, cartoon-style characters and animal figures add a touch of humor and fun while bright and muscular colors associated with a fearless painting style create dramatic impact.
