Emma Loizides is a local artist from Muswell Hill in North London. Painting mostly using oils, her works include bright Cityscapes and peaceful street scenes of London and travels abroad, combining elements of pop art and landscape painting and using vibrant colors.
After Studying Spanish at university and then spending years working in banking Emma admired the architecture and skyline of Canary Wharf and began painting again. She moved to Las Vegas in in 2006 on an 18 month internship, enjoying the many art events, neon skyline and bright lights of downtown. Since then work has been based on London, Cuba, Brazil &the USA, often taking out the people and cars as she likes the quiet of early morning and beauty of the empty streets and architecture.
In September 2013 she had her first solo show in London, followed by 6 more solo exhibitions from 2013-2018. She has also exhibited with the Society of Women Artists at the Mall Galleries, The NOA at the Royal College of Arts and the ING discerning eye exhibition in the Mall Galleries.
Inspiration also comes from several artists including Jasper Johns, Edward Hopper as well as Robert Delaunay for his bold and lively use of colour, and Wassily Kandinsky, for his theories on the effects art has on emotions.
Resent focus has been around experimenting with new ideas and techniques including gilding, collage, fine layers of resin, big blobs of colours to fine mists of luminous spray praint. The works are refreshing happy paintings that hope to uplift the audience.
