The Bird of Bahia

Oil, acrylic, 24ct Manetti Superior Gold Leaf on birchwood - framed in a white-grained wood. 



The artwork was shown at the Women's University Club in Mayfair, on July 5th 2024, for the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the King of Ashanti Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. A private function held by the King's nephew, Yaw Mark Nkansah-Amoyaw with speeches about the King's collectibles which are held at Windsor, the V&A and The Wallace Collection. 


The painting was on show in my solo show IN FlIGHT at The Hyde Gallery in London, Sept 2023 and 

The Other Art Fair in London, March 2024 - presented by Saatchi Art. 


The Bird of Bahia is the third painting in the series of gold panels that captures the essence of Brazil.


Part of the Brazil collection, each bird is painted and given character, carefully considering colour & pairing with the botanical work. 


The painting shows contrasting painting techniques of fine art & contemporary foliage. A single hummingbird that injects a burst of color, set against a backdrop of acrylic wash on birchwood. Showing the delicate grains in the birchwood in contrast with the vibrant oils of which the hummingbird is painted. 


A piece for art collectors who appreciate vibrant, nature-inspired works. The birchwood panel is set on a 24ct gold-leafed wood panel. Creating not only a painting but a sculptured piece of art.
