Perla Mignanelli is an Italian painter, who recently joined Wimbledon Art Studios. Inspired by gothic art, women and her surroundings, we’re keen to find out more about Perla and her practice.
Hi Perla, so what do you enjoy about being an artist here at Wimbledon Art Studios?
The creative environment - there are so many various and talented artists sharing knowledge and skills, spending time together and help each other out. You’re surrounded by people who believe in what they do.
Tell us about your work, what are you known for?
I mainly do painting and mixed media on canvas, mostly portraits.
What should we expect to see at the upcoming Wimbledon Art Fair?
Inspired by Frida Kahlo and Mexican Art, my latest collection of paintings is part of what I call decorative art. I’m experimenting with displaying canvases layered on top of each other at different angles.
Where else can we see your work?
I have an exhibition at The Brick Lane Gallery from the 9 - 21 October 2018.
Thanks Perla, we look forward to visiting you in studio 282 at Wimbledon Art Fair, from the 15 - 18 November 2018.
