Aya El Fallah, ‘My Square’, 2016, Arts-Mart

‘My Square’, 2016, is a mixed media painting by Egyptian artist Aya El Fallah featuring acrylic paint, and a collage technique for the first with African fabrics and markers on canvas. The painting is part of El Fallah’s ‘Ivory Coast’ collection, and based on her 2013 trip to Abidjan. Inspired by the Ivory Coast’s beautiful colours, the artist aimed to create an impression of living inside a big painting, using a collage technique replicating the patterns of colours of impressive African fabric, in addition to markers, oil pastel and acrylic.
