Discover the Mesmerising World of Amanda Johnstone: A Fusion of Fashion, Luxury and Art Proudly Represented by Addicted Art Gallery

Published - 10 August 2023, Thursday

Step into the vibrant universe of Amanda Johnstone, a leading mixed-media artist who fearlessly pushes artistic boundaries. Amanda creates all things ' bright and shiny ' with her unique ability to meld femininity, fashion, pop art, and contemporary luxury.

Inspired by high-end designers, fashion icons, and the finer things in life, Amanda's art transports you to a realm where glamour and creativity collide. Meticulously crafted, each piece combines her passions for interior design, photography, and contemporary art. Amanda expertly combines digital imagery with traditional mediums, employing a layering technique that brings her artwork to life.​​​​​​​

The journey begins with a giclée print on canvas or archival cotton rag paper, forming the foundation of Amanda's creative process. She applies her artistic touch from there, skillfully overlaying 24k gold leaf, silver leaf, oil sticks, acrylic paints, and charcoal. The result is a multi-dimensional artwork that transcends the boundaries of traditional art forms, leaving viewers captivated by its beauty.

Amanda's creations embody her passions and desires, celebrating and heroing the power of femininity. Each piece reflects her vision, from the graceful allure of feminine nudes to the opulent appeal of luxury fashion.

Amanda shares her inspiration in her own words, stating, "My artworks come from passion. Art, to me, is the soul of the home, the jewellery, essentially the essence of an individual. You can tell a lot about a person from the choices of art they choose to display. To me, my artworks represent who I am. I capture images of my inspirations and layer them into beautiful creations."

With a diverse background and extensive training in fashion and design, including a degree in fashion design and a diploma in makeup artistry focusing on fashion and film, Amanda brings a unique perspective to her art. Her creations evoke a sense of style, luxury, escapism, colour, pleasure, and desire, enveloping viewers in a world of sophistication and allure.

Amanda's art is more than mere aesthetics; it's an experience that elevates any living space.

"I love experimenting, and that is how my work is developed. Each piece is created through trial and error, studying other artists' work and processes and merging them into mine. Most of the time, my pieces start with photography and digital collage to create limited edition prints, and then I take it a step further by using mixed media to add another layer of depth." ~ Amanda Johnstone
