From @wrightsindianart Wright’s is incredibly excited to introduce to you our inaugural Artist of the Month, Antoinette Thompson. An incredible self-taught artist, she found herself through her expressionism and the use of abstraction after a troubled childhood. Influenced heavily by her mentor, Sheldon Harvey, Antoinette creates pieces full of imagination, with traditional motifs shining in totally unique and personal ways. This can be seen in her mixed media sculpture below, full of energy from the different shapes, colors, and swirling designs.⠀ ⠀ Follow her on Instagram at @athompsonart and check in with us as we showcase more of her beautiful pieces!
