New paintings by Katie Sims

On first sight, the paintings of British artist Katie Sims seem to be very dynamic and in movement. On second sight, you can spot abstract landscapes and rural environments. And if you’re a total pro, you realize that a lot of her paintings are a homage to the masterpieces by Mantegna and Poussin, but translated in a contemporary context by undermining the compositional structure of the original masterpiece.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
