London: The Mandrake’s 5 Must See Artists at The Other Art Fair
Nestled in the heart of Fitzrovia, you’d be forgiven for walking straight past the newly opened Mandrake whose unassuming exterior belies an eclectic and art-filled hotel within. Owner Rami Fustok’s passion for creativity can be felt throughout, with myriad artworks adorning the walls – each piece carefully selected and placed according to the space and atmosphere desired. Keen to celebrate emerging talent as well as the more established names, the art is not confined to canvas alone – the hotel’s Artist in Residence program sees ballet dancers, tattoo artists and sculptors all taking centre stage to create an exciting and engaging cultural mileu. Following on with this ethos of celebrating emerging talent, Rami Fustok has selected his 5 Must See artists at The Other Art Fair London.
Marcelina Amelia is a UK based Mixed-media artist who is originally from Poland, Czestochowa – the city famous for Catholic Pilgrims. Marcelina’s designs are a mixture of lustful darkness and adolescent innocence and her inspirations come from Catholic Iconography, childhood memories, dreams and beauty.
