Selected To Create Art In India with 30 International Artists

Melanie was delighted to receive an invitation to create artwork throughout January 2019, in Gujurat with 29 other international artists. As well as many tours of the beautiful and vibrant state, the artist created four artworks, which are currently touring India.

One of her mosaic creations on the residency was influenced from her findings in Gujurat, consisting of a bold fusion of Mackintosh and Indian kutch design.

The piece is framed with colours of the Indian flag with a tudor rose at its centre. The project was funded by the Indian government and Emagination designs.
