I welcome you to the enchanted, vibrantly colourful world of Ema Frost, where hummingbirds are reflected in the eyes of my characters and magical creatures hide in unsuspecting places, visible to only the most discerning eye. The delicately detailed images are inspired by the combined mythologies of Japanese and Maori folklore. The magic for me is in the detail. Each piece is not just an image, but a character with a history, name and mythology associated with it. My latest collection was born out of my most recent Artist in Residence in Japan, where I found my muse in the cities of Tokyo, Kanazawa, Osaka and Kyoto. And I hope all will enjoy :)
Also I'd just like to add since my return I've been very lucky to have my works grace the walls of the coveted Koru lounge at Auckland International Airport and am featured in the latest REMIX magazine which I will post the interview soon! I promise.
With lots of Frost
PS I'll be posting the art soon after the exhibition is underway
