London resident Minna George is a cosmopolitan at heart, who finds inspiration for her art in every feeling, rainstorm, film, mist, or rattle of thunder. "My paintings have no ethnicity and do not follow a certain school of landscape", she says, and readily agrees that while London and Bulgaria are her homes, the Middle East has definitely found its place in her paintings. However nature takes the lead as a source of perpetual inspiration.
Standing in the middle of her exhibition, she admits that the things she reads, her environment, her multiple travels and the photographs she takes often find their place in her artwork. "The joy I get from painting a face is just as exciting for me as letting the paint drip and mix with pigments freely."
