Misery - Speaking with Flowers - Diptych

Original Painting on Box Frame Board. Diptych. Each measures 1200 W x 1200 H x 40mm D 

About the Artwork: 'Speaking with Flowers' is a large-scale diptych that is full of technicolor fantasy. Her playful characters fill the canvases in exquisite balance and include a bubbling community of humans, magical animals, and vegetables. Her Asian-pacific cultural influences are evident as is her decades of experience in creating her style, mastering her techniques all while keeping totally original in her output. 

About the Artist: Tanja Jade McMillan (Misery) 

Grey Lynn Artist Tanja Jade McMillan (Misery), is undeniably one of New Zealand's most beloved female wall and pop artists, fiercely independent, as a country we have seen her life and work develop. Internationally she has done us proud, having exhibited in Berlin, Taiwan, Melbourne, Paris, Hawaii and Los Angeles. 
Her creative reach is extensive, ranging from highly crafted paintings and wall art to animation, fashion, toys, and children’s decor brand Misery Guts. Tanja also sculpts, having completed two commissioned bronzes in Auckland’s Art District of Karangahape Road in 2016.
Stylistically she could be equated to a saccharine Bill Hammond, with obvious visual references to her Tahitian / Chinese heritage, which can be seen through her subject matter, flattened depth of field, mode of storytelling and outstanding ink work.
