ABI JOINS ART COLLECTIVE WITH HENRIK ULDALEN AND TIFFANY COLE
As of July 1st 2020, Abi will be joining the portrait and figure artist collective of Henrik Uldalen and Tiffany Cole based in East London.
Henrik Aa. Uldalen was born in South Korea in 1986 and raised in Norway. He then spent time in Barcelona, Florence and Mexico City, before moving to England in 2015. Henrik is a self-taught, expressionist artist, whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting. Developed for over 12 years, his technique is placed together with abstract impasto, presented in a contemporary manner. Henrik examines the dark side of life, nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty. The artist’s practice helps him grasp his entity, expressing “I paint because I need to paint. I have always had things in my life that I need to work out, and I’ve found that the best way is to take it out in the studio.”
Tiffany Cole was born and raised in San Francisco California and is now based in London. She is a self-taught artist whose work revolves around the female form. “I am so interested and consumed with the beauty and sensuality of the feminine essence and I feel like I get to tell stories with my hands and create the worlds that I had kept trapped in my mind for so many years, and I’m finding with my work I’m able to give a voice to the inner thoughts of many women I’ve come to meet.” Tiffany adds abstraction to her work to leave the viewers eye filled with different and unexpected marks juxtaposed against the human form.
