Desi Art: Bollywood sparkle

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

The best way to describe this next Canadian artist is how her work made me feel. I was at the Toronto Interior Design show a few months ago and was casually walking through, and then my eyes automatically locked onto the sparkle. Can't describe the feeling, for you Indians out there, it was kind of like going through loads of lenghas and saris (traditional indian garments) and then just finding the one. All sparkly and gorgeous ...and flat out wow. Karen Johnston, may not be a desi, and I'm not certain if she has ever gone through the sari shopping experience, but some of her work screams bollywood and certainly makes you think she is very familiar. Mosaicworks is Karen's artistic baby where she works with multiple textures and colours to produce jaw dropping mirrors that are pieces of art. Delicate glam is how I would describe it. 

Gold Bling mirror. Wow. Available at Mosaicworks

I can't handle the sparkle, its making you giddy right? Bling silver available here.

Glam turquoise mirror. Beautiful.

Simply striking in white too.

All pieces are available through Mosaicworks and you can follow Karen's blog here too.

These pieces are FAB! I'm glad you showed the close-up because I suspect that the photos above don't do the mirrors justice. I'm off to check out Karen's blog and website.

After checking out your links I'm thinking that I should have a 'sari shopping experience' sooner then later!
Thanks for the lovely write up.

I'm a great fan of Mosaicworks and have 2 of Karen's mirrors. They're addictive!
