WachiraS Artist based in Battersea
Wachira is an Artist based in Battersea ,London .Graduated from Fashion Design school and having trained with Thailand top fashion designer and worked as a fashion designer in Bangkok . Shape and Colour have always excited and inspired me. Moving full-time to London-specifically Battersea- in 2006, the iconic Battersea Power Station caught my imagination. It’s size and power and link to the past in the changing landscape of Battersea and Nine Elms made it the perfect ’subject’ of my increasing move towards becoming a full-time artist. As it is gradually dismantled and re-designed as part of the Nine Elms re-development, the original building and the lasting impression it gave to me, I hope, is still alive and inspiring to all in my work. My art is inspired by many forms but is heavily influenced by the Impressionist movement. Growing up in vibrant Bangkok, my art mirrors life’s noise and colours and the effect changing light has on landscapes and city skylines. Now being based in Battersea ,London I have a wonderful opportunity to reflect this great city and all its colours, shapes and noise. My current pieces showcase the riverside scenes and Battersea park images in and around London . Pallet-knife techniques give my work texture and bring London to life!
