Artist's Spotlight: Mandy Brockbank
Packed Full of Imagination
Welcome to our latest Artist's Spotlight - Mandy Brockbank, a local Umdloti resident. In two words we'd describe Mandy's style as "brightly beautiful". Her colors used and bold painting give her a distinctly memorable style. Mandy's bubbly personality and free spirited nature can be seen clearly through her art pieces.
Color Your Space
As Mandy once stated "I like to paint on anything the paint will stick to!" Her intricate detailing and vibrant colors are what make her work truly unique and eye-catching. She paints custom designs on furniture, walls, canvas and more.
Her art is bound to be the biggest feature in your space and add a piece of nostalgia and imagination. As seen in the featured images, a lot of Mandy's art is painted on refurbished old chairs. This really gives them a vintage yet fun feeling.
After studying fine art at Wits, Mandy has been painting ever since. She paints using a variety of mediums and various painting techniques to get more texture and a 3D feel to her work. Her subjects feature a range of things including animals, plants and people. Mandy always adds color to everything she does. You can see her passion to create powerful and extraordinarily bold pieces.
Personally, I first met Mandy when she moved in next door to us in Umdloti. I could see her passion for painting straight away! She had loads of paintings in her home and was always working on new pieces. The first piece of work she gave us was a sea themed painted chair which one of our customers completely fell in love with! Recently I also sent Mandy an image of a bird taken in the Kruger of which her painted version came out beautifully!
There isn't too much more for us to say except that we're proud to have Mandy's stunning artwork in store and we think it speaks volumes to our local talent.
We hope that Mandy's artwork will inspire you to create your perfect space and find that one-of-a-kind piece of art to go into it.
