Amanda Mulquiney-Birbeck is a British figurative painter. Her vibrant works often feature young, strong and glamorous women set in shallow spaces. Often with an air of attitude yet tinged with melancholy.
Her works combine candy colours with gold leaf, incorporating refined blended painting techniques with looser, gestural brush marks. Often contrasting bright, neon backgrounds with muted earthy and surreal tones.
Influenced by Gustav Klimt, Peter Doig, Jonathan Yeo, Martina Johanna and Peter Monkman amongst many more contemporary painters. Mulquiney-Birbeck approaches her work using source imagery from the internet and fashion magazines - creating a tension between realism and painterly abstraction.
Born in Berkshire, in 1987, she went onto graduate from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design London in 2009 with a first class honours degree. Since graduating, her work has been shown in galleries, event spaces, and published in industry-leading magazines. Mulquiney-Birbeck has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and has sold her work to both art-lovers and private collectors in the UK and internationally.
Fine Art (BA Hons), Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London. First Class Honours Degree.
