INSPIRATION

Olga de Amaral, a Colombian artist. De Amaral turned textures into a golden surface, using golden panels and still maintaining the delicate textures underneath. The idea of the collection: create the gold effects in De Amaral´s work but in a different aspect- to achive it through the simplicity.
