They are all self aware, proud and strong women that are portrayed using a silhouette of white paint. The art pieces are built using acrylic paint that is applied in many different layers. This organic and colorful expression is the basis of every piece within this category.

The first pieces were sold to acquaintances and half a year later B-art hosted his very own first solo expo. He now works together with high-end galleries, showrooms and interior designers. But he also works on request.
“I have my own original artsy way of working. I find it hard to commit to just one style. Why just use 1 style when there are endless beautiful possibilities. I work on canvas, wood, mdf, copper and polystone with products such as: high quality acryl paint, montana graffiti, markers, stickers and prints. I also like to work with lasting products such as epoxy, 24k gold and/or silver leafs, diamond dusts and lacquers.”
Since late 2018 B-art mostly spends his time developing unique 1/1 paintings. His new collection contains many new abstract art pieces. By experimenting with many new techniques B-art creates a surprising, unique effect.
