grAzie, ‘Studio 54 Series 1’, 2017, Flat Space Art

grAzie is a New Zealand born visual artist based in London. Her most recent work is a riotous celebration of life and the love of being a woman. Exploring the many facets of the female form grAzie ́s girls are captured in personal moments of intimacy, reflection and thought depicted in bright colours to express the beauty within. grAzie`s distinct style blends inspiration from fashion, music and pop youth culture create works that are impactful and evocative. She repeatedly turns to a distinct colour motif that is an intense palette of pastels with pops of neon, muted tones of gold and black. Experimentation with spray paint, acrylic, diamond dust and water based paint on canvas or metallic card brings to life a series of bold and provocative pieces that merge underlying elements of pop, street and abstract art. grAzie studied Fine Arts at Canterbury University, NZ and went on to travel and paint the world.
The dancing figures, top and bottom, are so relatable in this picture, we have all been those dancing figures at some stage. The block colours in the background bring forwards the dancing figures, the graffiti gives them the effect of flashing lights, it almost feels as though you are in Studio 54 with them. What an exquisite piece for any collection.
