Artist Mayte Nicole (born in Santo Domingo and now living and working in Barcelona) has made the silk shawls in limited amount and each one of them is handpainted by her. For the shawls to be hanging alongside vintage clothing was a deliberate choice for the artist, working with ancient techniques it felt natural that the shawls would go alongside pieces that have a history and hold stories.
Mayte Nicole her work method evolves around the tradition of Eastern ink painting and in her depictions she often refers to the surrealistic scenes and tropical landscapes from her childhood in the Dominican Republic. The strong lines of the black ink contradict the soft colours and textures of the surface that she paints on, creating a duality that is often found within her artistic practice.
