Art: Ana Montiel wows us with her explorations of pattern in ongoing series

Posted by Rob Alderson,

It seems strange that we haven’t featured Ana Montiel on the site before but there’s no time like the present to rectify this curious oversight. The Spanish-born, London-based artist and designer has several strings to her bow and has produced both commissioned and personal work of the very highest standard. But perhaps the best introduction to her is Visual Mantras, an ongoing series in which she has “explored repetitive drawing as a meditation itself and has developed a series of absorbing and richly coloured geometries that bring up the cyclical rhythm of life.”

These bright, beautiful and meticulously-crafted pieces sing with colour and vibrancy, pitch perfect for a sunny summer day.
