About Australian Artist Nicole Baker

Australian abstract artist Nicole Baker stays true to her signature style and unconstrained painterly nature with ‘Lion Heart.’ Drawing from her love of abstract, pop art and street art, Nicole’s overlapping of painterly strokes and textures has created deep layers of blocked colour that saturate the whole surface of this cotton canvas.

Original Art Pieces and their mediums: Acrylic, Soft Pastel & Spray Paint

Substantial areas of pastel pink paint sit alongside blocked colours of burgundy, fluorescent orange, gold, mint and olive green. Colours have been painted with thick brushstrokes that hold their line retention. Paint has been rolled on, flicked and sprayed. On closer viewing of ‘Lion Heart’, you can see small areas of splattered duck egg blue and patches of fluorescent yellow that hide behind larger colour blocks. The longer you view this painting, the more intriguing it becomes. You will get the sense that this is a painting that has been painted over time. Something very typical of Nicole’s artwork. Her work is known to take months to complete as she re-visits each work numerous times before it is finished.

On the surface of the canvas over the bold and vibrant painted colours, there are soft white pastel marks. White organic circle shapes and cross-hatching have been hand-drawn and can be seen to soften this dynamic piece of artwork, bringing it together as a whole.
