HEY! Have you seen the artwork of Patrizia Berdkan? 

Patrizia acrylic paintings are full of delight and whimsy with bright colours and layered geometric shapes.

Patrizia on her work:

"My work is inspired by a mix mid-century modern design,architectural events such as Expo 67, and a vintage aesthetic fromvarious eras. Having been raised before the age of the internet, I spent many summers exploring art galleries in Montreal. I have a fixation with painting houses in whimsical ways and use them as a focal point in most of my paintings as they bring a familiarity to an otherwise abstract work. I use colors that trigger a positive emotional reaction and a sense of nostalgia."

"Hue and Cry", 20"x 20", Acrylic on Canvas
