About the artist
Nielly’s unmistakeable signature style transmits palpable electric energy, a brute force that launches colour like a projectile missile. Known for creating large-scale vibrant, contrasting, fluorescent portraits, her canvases communicate the artist’s strong character and youthful spontaneity. Bold oils and a palette knife are her preferred tools. This particular series works to showcase the similarities and differences between humans, focusing on collective emotions across an array of ages, ethnicities and gender. Picasso, de Kooning, Francis Bacon, Lucien Freud, have all been of interest to Nielly along with urban culture.
