Waleska Nomura is a Brazilian street artist. Self taught in the visual arts, Nomura begin her career painting graffiti letters onto the streets of Sao Paulo, before turning to the canvas where she experimented with an array of media and materials.
’Patchwork Heart’ is part of Nomura’s ‘Spreading the Love and Positive Energy to the World’ project, which seeks to disseminate a message of warmth and humanity. The print depicts a composite of patchwork patterns, visually woven together to create a large love heart. Using an array of hand finished elements - including gold, silver, and copper leaf, pearlescent glazes, high gloss spot varnishes, fluorescent pigment, and fluffy clouds - Nomura creates astonishing texture, galvanising each panel of the heart. Four leaf clovers and flowers, cats and clouds, merge in a rainbow palette, powerfully recalling the peace movements of the 1960s and 70s to offer a glimpse of optimism in a time of turbulence.
