Description Probably my favourite mermaid so far! Also the largest and most complex I've painted so far too. The title is sort of an inside joke and refers to Giuseppe Arcimboldo - an Italian painter from about 500 years ago who painted a lot of 'hidden picture' paintings. And obviously, there are a lot of hidden pictures in this painting - the mermaid's tail is made up completely out of sea creatures - sting rays, sand dollars, sharks, octopus, dolphins, abalone, seahorses, pearls, shells, oysters, lobsters, shrimps, eel, fish and loads more. The more you look at this the more you will see! I think this might have been the most fun I've ever had on a painting, and I plan on doing some similar hidden picture style pieces in the future. The original acrylic painting is SOLD, prints and Limited Edition canvases are available online (and large open edition canvases are also available at Downtown Disney's Pop Gallery at Walt Disney World).
Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Celebration, Florida Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement My name is Jasmine Becket-Griffith. (Aka Strangeling or mis-spelled as Jasmine Beckett-Griffith). I am 29 years old and I live in beautiful Celebration, Florida. I am a full-time artist and I make my living selling my artwork. I have been selling my original Fairy, Gothic, and Fantasy artwork online since 1997.
I grow weary of the mundane world, and I am trying to slowly create my own through my fantasy artwork. I believe that with each piece of art I get out of my system, onto paper, and into your home I have done my part to make this place a more magical planet.
You may have seen my artwork featured in new lines of clothing and other merchandise being sold in thousands of retail stores across the country, in places like Hot Topic, Torrid, Target, SuperTarget, Hastings, Busch Gardens, Disneyland Paris, the Bradford Exchange, Hamilton Collection, and other stores throughout the country! Some of the paintings that I am selling here on ImageKind are the very images that will be licensed for these products. Here is your chance to own the actual artwork!
My work can be found in collections and galleries throughout the world, and am featured in the books "The Art of Faery" & "The World of Faery" now in stores! I was also selected to have my artwork appear in "Spectrum 11," "Spectrum 13," and the new "Spectrum 15"! Also be sure to check out my solo art book called "Fairy: the Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith" as well as my NEW "Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Portfolio Volume I" solo art book! Be sure to check all of my galleries, I paint new paintings nearly everyday and plan to add them as prints here often!
