Margita Thiele - Buy My Art Online

Margita Thiele

I am a mother of two and reside in Pretoria. Coming from a graphic design background where perfection rules, I am drawn to the freedom and imperfections of painting and drawing. I often scribble vigorously, drip and splash paint or smear and scrape paint to enhance the idea of miss-registration. My work may appear graffiti-like and the title of my works serve as a starting point for the viewer of what the work is about. I enjoy art that uplifts and entertains and want the viewer to reflect on his own life. The themes of my paintings are mainly commentary on everyday people. By using lots of detail in mixed media, collage items and texture, further clues on the deeper meaning of the works are given. I love using vibrant, contrasting colours to further express my feelings or emotions.
