Created in 2018, 2018 was a year where I became more confident in creating bigger and bolder art pieces. I went back to my roots namely Litchtenstein and Patrick Caulfield and wanted to create cleaner, simpler art pieces under the Pop Art umbrella. I also started experimenting with the use of words more fully as pieces of stand alone art. The power and beauty of words I use in my personal affirmation and manifestation practise, so this was a great opportunity for me to bring out the positive beauty and message of the word through my art.
Hello was a statement to the world outside, to people, to the universe that Hello this is me Midula Dey I’ve found my voice, I’ve arrived and I want to send a happy positive Hello.
With this piece I wanted to keep it simple and focus on the black lines and the form of the pieces rather than bring in too much colour. This piece is therefore stripped back and focuses on the word, and how each individual letter of the word Hello are interconnected. Celebrating each of the separate letters and the connectivity and strength as a whole, the shapes and and the inner design element draw on the Memphis design movement and graffiti art.
This piece is a special piece for me because it was drawn in a Moleskin sketch book that some good friends of mine had gifted to me. Every time I drew in the book was a reminder of our friendship so I would always be that extra careful when creating artwork in my Moleskin sketch book.
