Original acrylic on canvas Natasha Khan painting.
This painting was inspired by all the beautiful street art that has been showing up all over our city over the past decade or so. I really like that stencilled look. I practiced stencilling onto canvas a few times but it never ends up quite crisp enough for me so I hand painted a stencil inspired Natasha Khan. Natasha Khan is one of my favourite musical artists. I find her music really inspiring to work to because not only has she got a beautiful voice and amazing unique musical ideas but she comes across as very creative in other aspects too. She has a very unique fashion sense, all her video clips are really different and beautiful and her album covers all beautiful works of art. I chose the colours because I really liked the contrast of the black “stencil” with the pastel colours. Also they seemed like the kind of colours that might be used on a wall (sticking with the street art theme).
