New Mural by Handiedan in Richmond, VA

Art Whino returned to Richmond, VA on July 11, 2016 for the fifth installment of the Richmond Mural Project.  This year the organization reached their short-term goal of creating 100 murals throughout the city, allowing visitors to see work of differing styles by artists from around the world.

One of this years participants was Handiedan, a Dutch artist who pushes mixed-media collage to a higher level.  Similar to her fine art process, Handiedan’s wheat paste murals are multi-layered, hand-cut collages that have a distinct three-dimensional quality.  Her subjects are classic female pin-ups that she creates digitally using ornamental components such as currencies, sheet music and her own cartoon drawings.  Handiedan’s pin-ups look like something between an adorned femme fatale from a noir film, a sexually joyful pin-up from a 1950’s calendar and a tattooed rockabilly girl.  Each work is a treasure trove of symbols, with a focus on cosmology, Eastern philosophy and sacred geometries.

Below are images of Handiedan creating Luna Cogitationis for the Richmond Mural Project:
