Olga de Amaral: The Enchanting Textile Artist Comes to Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham Art Mayfair

For a limited time only, Victoria Beckham on Dover Street has been taken over by spectacular work by the talented artist, Olga de Amaral.

Olga de Amaral’s work was first discovered by Victoria Beckham and her team at Frieze earlier this year. Her work captivated Victoria Beckham through the use of different materials and her contribution to the post-war Latin American Abstraction movement.

For December, Richard Saltoun has lent the Victoria Beckham store on Dover Street some spectacular pieces. The store welcomes guests to visit the exhibition to see the unique works of art and to also learn about some of the most influential people in history. 

“She is a great addition to the male-centric view of what art should look like,” says Richard Saltoun on Colombian artist Olga de Amaral. Saltoun’s gallery specialises in post-1960 feminist, conceptual, and performance art, and de Amaral’s pieces struck a chord with Saltoun for their innovative technique and distinctive look. “She is far removed from the historic, domestic, and craft-based designation of tapestry and textile work and her work should be valued as such.” 

“Her work was unlike anything I had ever seen before,” says Saltoun who was particularly drawn by de Amaral’s unconventional approach to scale and material. “I was instantly struck by her sophisticated and innovative use of material to create these monumental sculptures. Managing to maintain a sense of movement despite their weighty presence.”

The pieces can be seen in the Victoria Beckham store now and until early January 2020.
