Willemien Bardawil

Willemien is an artist based in London. Her work history is in fashion so you will see her love for colour and print reflected strongly in her art. She is constantly inspired by the current world around her but always looks back to art of the past for influence. Her compositions and themes are often influenced by ancient Greek or Roman sculptures and Renaissance and Romantic periods. She reinterprets these classical forms in a playful and feminine way within the modern context of today, focusing on exploring the female form living her most joy. She works primarily in watercolour, ink and pastel to achieve her fluid style. But also acrylic and oil on canvas for larger commissions. Formally she is trained in drawing by the Ruskin school of art in Oxford and Royal drawing school in London, but her very unique aesthetic is entirely self taught.
