Artist of the moment………..Hama Woods

 

 

Hama Woods is a world renown stencil artist from Norway. She is famous for her mainly black and white imagery of animals and rodents that include just a touch of color. The artist is highly interested in nature.

Woods is based out of Oslo, Norway.

Hama Woods reminds me of Belgian artist R.O.A. Both artists have a great respect for man and animals which shines through in their artwork. Another artist she brings to mind is René Magrite. Woods and Magrite both included Surrealism in their artwork.
