watercolour, gouache, ink and pencil
148mm x 210mm, 2018
Created in 2018, Hattie is a watercolour, gouache, ink and pencil artwork created by Zyra Bañez as a form of experimentation with colour and style.
Hypebeast fashion and street style brands increased in mainstream popularity, which in turn added a slight edginess to this style. The goal was to explore new kinds of poses and foreshortening angles.
In the previous years, Zyra’s artworks involved limited and muted colour palettes influenced by minimalism. However, 2018 was the year that started to move away from neutrals and embrace a bit of colour, or perhaps a lot.
As a form of experimentation, solid colour blocks, bold shapes and plant imagery became consistent in Zyra’s artworks. Black ink is also a staple in this era, combined with graffiti and typography.
