London based artist Hisham Echafaki is currently exhibiting a new series of large scale multidimensional paintings at The Other Art Fair in Los Angeles.
Continuing to push the limits, the trompe l’oeil effects are so intricately done, that the eyes can be deceiving in believing these are real insects, butterflies and dragonfly. But, no , the visual effect are the results of a long and detailed process of acrylic paint and layers of resin. Even a closer look can leave the visitors puzzled as to whether these specimen really exist.
Playing with depth, iridescence and transparence, Hisham Echafaki imaginary creatures seem to be floating in space. A magical moment not to be missed.

During the Other Art Fair in London, Aida Wilde (covered) and Sisters in Print held a series of workshops to share their skills and passion for printmaking, from cutting like a Ninja, print like a Butterfly to Macho only workshops.
The workshops featured all the techniques from monoprint, stencils, collages, screenprints and tools of the trade and their secrets.
While the fierce ladies focussed on their techniques and prints with vibrant imagery and powerful slogans, men couldn’t help but cut a bold happy willy…
Expression in all its forms and good laughs were in order
Big up to the energetic Queen Printmaker Aida, Juliette Stuart and the Sisters in Print, as well as GFSmith papers, Great Art UK and Screentec for providing the prints!
