Kathe Fraga

Kathe Fraga's paintings are amazingly bright, they are like fresco's or graffiti over bright floral wallpaper.
" The paintings in my “French Wallpaper Series” are intended to evoke the hand-painted, timeworn walls of a grand old Parisian mansion. Each piece resembles an aged decorative fresco panel adorned with birds and flowers, vines and leaves in a modern Chinoiserie style. I am inspired by the bright, colourful, fanciful imagery that made this unique style popular in the 17th and 18th century". (thanks)
