The interesting thing about paint is that you can create your own universe and visual language that still references real life and existing imagery. Bam-Bam transforms spaces and surfaces with patterns, designs and shapes. Sharing her creations with the world, Bam-Bam paints publicly as a performance of exchange. Whether it’s a mural, street art, commission or collaboration Bam-Bam enters the practice with an open mind and an appreciation of flow. Each piece is an evolution and exploration of what works visually. Painting on large scale is a hugely active and energetic experience, it is essentially a dance. Immensely inspired by music and movements Bam-Bam’s visual expressions are planned but also adaptable and intuitive. She uses spray-paints, hand painting, body painting, stencil making and printing to create her works.
Bam-Bam often adapts different characters whilst painting, with costumes and personas, to become fully immersed in what she is creating. She combines traditional and contemporary styles with a frequent use of geometric patterns. Creating large-scale psychedelic imagery that evokes a sense of fantasy, freeing the mind from the constraints of the real world and allowing the imagination to flow.
From her paintings Bam-Bam has also developed these designs into wearable art and décor, not only can you look at the paintings, you can become part of them.
