Dazed, by London based artist Grazie, is an original acrylic on black card.
Originally from New Zealand, her distinct style blends a number of factors. Inspiration comes from fashion, music and pop culture to create works that are impactful and evocative. However, she repeatedly turns to a distinct colour palette. This brings to life a series of bold pieces that merge underlying elements of pop, street and abstract art. Dazed is a great example of this.
In addition to this, Grazie’s style is easily recognised by her portrayal of popular imagery and icons through a faceless painting style. She references many of her favourite artists in her work often combining art history with contemporary figures and settings.
Dazed is based on a photograph of Kate Moss and friends at a party.
