Breaking The Ice | Solo Exhibition

Breaking the Ice Solo Exhibition by Maria Montes | Nieuw Amsterdam, Melbourne 2015

Embracing both aspects of this idiom —making a start, and the art of mixing drinks— this exhibition brings the excitement of new beginnings with a salute to tradition, in both cocktails and art.

Combining patterns, lettering and illustration, this body of work is an explosion of colour and intricate detail, celebrating the finer things in life. Cheers!

I am really excited to present my new body of work featuring a series of illustrated cocktail artworks and patterns prints created from the individual cocktail ingredients, I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.
