Back in 2004 Monica Maja Richardson decided to leave her successful Italian TV-presenter persona behind and moved to London in a bid to pursue her artistic ambitions.
After some colour experimentation and a dash (or in this case, shall we say splash) of inspiration from both Pollock and Richter, Richardson began to develop her own unique style. Her use of colour is very instinctive and is meant to evoke a unique response within each onlooker.
In 2012, she held her first exhibition in Kensal Rise and within just two hours, all seventeen of her paintings were sold. Now, eighteen months later and with her new exhibition titled Colours, you’ve got the opportunity once again to get your hands on one of her creations. Do be quick – if the last was anything to go by, they’ll fly off the shelves.
