At the Fountain Art fair, Helene Mukhtar presents a collection of acrylic and collage paintings completed in 2012 as well as a series of animations based on her painted work.
In her latest production she celebrates life in all its forms. With her usual exuberance and sense of humor she mixes bright, vivid colors reminiscent of her youth spent in the Mediterranean sun with an expressionist painting style. Line drawings, collage, animal and human shapes and abstract landscape animate her energetic compositions influenced by cartoons, street art and medieval bestiaries.
Mukhtar was born and educated in the South of France. She now lives and works in Brooklyn. Mukhtar received an MFA from Florida State University. Recent solo shows include the 440 Gallery in Brooklyn, Galerie ArtSud in France and Ion Studio in Soho.
