Acrylic paintings bursting with colour by Laura West

Laura West is an artist from New York – who is part Russian, part Armenian – who explores bright colours, dark images and uses this emotional release to dictate the route of her work. With high-energy and the physicality of throwing string gel paint over a meticulous base, it's a rush that is visible in all of her bold colours, expressive drips and often off-kilter subject matter. Laura earned her BFA as a full scholarship recipient in Screenwriting and Studio Art at New York University, 2009. She has exhibited her work in various shows across the Big Apple.
