Emily Donald is a British artist, living and working in Newquay, Cornwall. Her work is inspired by her surroundings, be that the street art of urban locales or the exotic landscapes that she has encountered on her many travels. Pop aesthetics, urban styles, and traditional Asian illustration coalesce in her work through the medium of textile design.
Using a mix of collage, pen and ink, and detailed painting, ‘Green Bee-eater in Sri Lanka’ depicts the titular bird in flight against a backdrop of newspaper clippings, its feathered wings spread to the extremities of the canvas. With a keen sensitivity to bright colour, intricate pattern and visual texture, Donald’s print is explosive, capturing the dynamic movement of the exotic bird with all the intensity of a photographic snapshot, fused with the artistic prowess of modern abstraction.
