Colorful Swirls of Cultural Icons by Nicky Barkla.

For any painter, an artwork is like a little secret, it holds many hours of life, many feelings and hours are poured into one still image. Australian self taught Artist Nicky Barkla living in Melbourne has created trippy psychedelic paintings consisting of colorful swirls.

She uses memorable pop and media icons of fiction from movies and comics in her paintings that truly makes her work that much more fun. Nicky’s every painting explodes with vibrant bleeding colors. Barkla uses an awesome color palette including oil, acrylic, watercolors, pencils, markers and brush technique.
