About the exhibition: "PERISCOPE KALEIDOSCOPE"Step back into your childhood through a collection of works inspired by everyone’s favourite toy; The Kaleidoscope.
Enter the wonderful world of the kaleidoscope and see the colour and beauty only kaleidoscopes bring. Kaleidoscopes never make the same pattern twice so with every turn you'll be mesmerised to see never-before seen colours and patterns captured for you to keep.
About Sami Sparrow, Licensing Artist & AuthorSami Sparrow has been artistic for as long as she can remember. As she says, ‘[I was] born with a crayon in my hand and paint coursing through my veins.’
Now a practicing and published artist – she has three colouring books for adults to her name – she’s found a way to bring her artistic passion to a wide audience.
When working on paintings, Sami enjoys layering paint ad working outside. As she says, ‘I tend to throw paint…I love the free nature of minimal human corruption.’ Her main materials are wood panels, heavy weighted papers, and acrylic, spray and watercolour paint. Sami also uses stencils to create consistency throughout the layers. ‘I hand cut all my stencils, I enjoy making them as they are never the same and have some imperfections that you wouldn’t otherwise get.’
In the future, Sami would love to create large mural pieces and collaborate with other artists.
Sami is inspired by art history, contemporary artists including AQUAMAN and Hannah Goodwin, and ‘mandalas, kaleidoscopes, stained glass windows, geometric patterns, and graffiti.’
