Nikki Douthwaite

This UK based artist works around two mediums, confetti art and collage. Her unique portraits are crafted from thousands of paper dots taken from household hole punchers to create stunning portraits of iconic personalities such as Marilyn Monroe and sports stars including F1 legends Ayrton Senna and James Hunt. An F1 collection she created for McLaren featured over a million individually placed dots made from F1 Racing magazine and took over 4,700 hours to create.

Close up, the tiny paper dots, are painstakingly stuck on board with tweezers and then built up in varnished layers to provide a highly visual coloured mix, however viewed from a distance they present a black and white image, a technique known as ‘optical mixing’.

Her work therefore creates two experiences for the viewer, the close up detail of thousands of dots, many from readable articles that at first appear chaotic and without order, however viewed from afar the colours mix together creating the image as a whole. The artist is interested in presenting the subject’s bone structure and expression.
