MANDY MCCARTIN (UK)

WEB: http://www.mandymccartin.com/

Mandy McCartin’s expressive paintings depict the fringes of city life through explicit, energetic compositions. Populated by urban animals, rubbish, human alienation and vice, her work is very emotionally loaded and often expresses feelings of madness, anger and loss as a response to societal and artistic norms.

“My working class background and interest in street culture have informed the imagery I use and the way it is created”.

Mandy stands out as a painter through a precise control of the medium, with strategic overlapping techniques and a dazzling range of colours. Aggressive, elaborate and generous in detail, Mandy’s paintings are a force of emotional transformation. This is not comfortable art.

Mandy is associated with the Stuckists and has shown her work in solo and group shows in London and the UK.
