An Argentinian born artist based in London.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Nora Velazco is a fashion and textile designer and painter.
Versatility summarises Velazco's artistic development and personality. Experimenting with various techniques, and mixing colours and materials was a favourite childhood game. She is also knowledgeable in pattern making, sewing and designing textiles, as well as painting which has allowed her to produce a unique style.
The work is generated by spontaneous gesture-driven brushstrokes, transparencies and the superposition of layers. The dripped-paint technique evokes melancholic memories mixed with future expectations.
Velazco is attentive to how different people react when seeing a certain piece of art and how they relate her work to past memories of their own. What intrigues her most is the whole idea of a physical suggestion that sometimes leads people to process images, as if like a kind of short film about the past.
Her work aims to convey a mixture of suggestive colour and expressionist brush works in order to generate feelings and emotions.
