Dotty Art is a London based artist who mainly works in the medium of acrylic and oil paints and sometimes mixed media.
“My personal experience has created a heightened sensitivity to the misfits, the forgotten, and those who fall through the cracks. My art romanticises these characters, contextualised in historic and cultural dilemma. Inspiration comes from my past, and therefore a lot of it points towards being British Asian and the cultural clash which is so rich in it’s history. I tend to work backwards from how I want my audience to feel, then I visualise the piece, then I start creating! I have huge admiration for the work of Takeshi Murakami & Jean Michel Basquiat, which continues to inspire me.”
