Norwich based multimedia artist Anmar Mirza has a unique relationship with creative production and the obstacles that get in its way. Through the mediums of acrylic, pencil, crayon and woven tapestry, Mirza explores the visions of a clouded mind. Often eyes are concealed in warm fuzz and at times lost in chaotic brushstrokes and emphasised lines, depicting the emotion fuelled lens by which we can distort reality. The artist turns fragments of feelings and memories into works of art in the process of freeing his past. Juxtaposed to this ‘mess of life,’ Mirza’s work also portrays an intense feeling of clarity. In putting the rollercoaster of emotion to paper, he has worked out his internal process of clarifying those things that stop him from producing the work that he wants to produce. His process revolves around simplicity and ritual in order to raise a healthy balance of reflection and production. It is clear that when this balance is stable Anmar can play with life’s most beautiful things; painting floral abstractions alight with bees, faces, and sunlight. Mirza’s expertly rendered emotions can be seen across the buildings of Norwich, as well as in Amsterdam and Barcelona. With 4BYSIX, Mirza presents a two tone bus panel adorned with his characteristic bee and eyes.
