POP Art: MIRO by Miriam Omar

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Ryan Gosling - WOW!


MIRO is another awesome homegrown artist I recently got to know. Her art is eccentric and unique. The black pen style gives the entire art piece an edge, with a combo of fun and modern!

There’s some fashion illustration style here and there too, and what I love most about MIRO’s art is how down-to-earth it is, reminds me of today’s hipster generation.

However, when I asked MIRO about her style, she describes it as POP Art / Black and White Illustrations.

I feature MIRO’s art because I know it would be something unique for a change, especially for inspirations. After all, how often do you come across art like these, right? I’m beginning to turn into an “art collector”, I think. Not so much on purchasing the art though, of course if I have enough cha-ching, I definitely would invest in these indie artists art pieces; but more like seeking them out and featuring these amazing artists and art on the blog.

MIRO’s art is certainly one of a kind, one that I would invest in. It’s commercial yet not, it’s modern yet old school, it’s serious yet fun! It has the combo of it all.

Here’s a little info about MIRO artist, full name Miriam Omar. She’s a graduate from London College of Fashion and Raffles Design institute where she studied Fashion Marketing (now I see the fashion illustration style in it). She moonlights as MIRO the artist, but by day, Miriam is a Marketing Consultant where she provides Marketing and Branding solutions, specializing in E-commerce and Social Media marketing. According to Miriam, she has always loved drawing. MIRO came to be when she was found shopping for the right wedding present a tough task, especially for a friend who has it all. Finally, she realized it would be meaningful to draw her friend & husband on a canvas as a wedding gift. When Miriam posted it online, she started receiving lots of good feedback and from then on, she started a Facebook page and never look back!

MIRO currently offers, custom portraits (pop art / black and white), wedding cards, fashion illustrations and apparels featuring her own series of illustrations.
