Following the recent successful Audrey Kawasaki show, there appears to be another interesting show in Italy on the horizon. Here is one of the works that Amy Sol will have available at her upcoming show at Mondo Bizzarro opening early December. There seems to be a softer look to this piece but perhaps that’s because she is trying some new techniques. She says… “this exhibit will be based on illustrated works on cotton.
