Phiroza Kapadia

November 1 - November 30

Tell us briefly about your background & how you got started in your medium.

Phiroza is a mixed media and collage artist, who moved to the Harrisburg area in 2013 when her journey began with mixed media art. She started off with abstract artwork, but over the past couple years has incorporated more collage into her art, as she enjoys exploring new forms of expression. The artist journey is all about trying new things, incorporating new techniques, refining style, and creating art that feels exciting and engaging!

 

How does your medium inform your viewpoint? Or what do you like most about your medium?

I love making collage as they are fun and expressive. I like incorporating mixed media materials such as molding pastes and gels into my collage as well, making these mixed media collages. Different textures and papers spark ideas for new paintings, and this is the fun part about creating!

 

Who or what have been your artistic inspirations?

I took a collage making workshop a couple years ago and found it so much fun that I haven’t been able to stop creating it this way. Inspiration comes in many forms – and I’m inspired by what I find in daily life, from the mundane to the exceptional. I think life and art are intertwined and inspiration can strike at any time.

 

Do you have a favorite piece in your portfolio?

Yes, I recently did a 24” x 24” collage series of the magnificent lotus flower and one of the pieces turned out to be my favorite!

What would be your advice to artists just starting out in your medium?

Explore collage making as it’s a fun and easy way to get started on a painting. It will keep you loose and free and is a forgiving medium, for if you don’t like something in your painting you can just collage over it! You might get hooked on collage as I have, and it’s certainly worth giving it a try.
