Artist Kamelyta Noor  

No Steak Left In Town- Kamelyta Noor Still Here- Kamelyta Noor Patty Melt And Grilled Onions are Crazy Good- Kamelyta Noor

Artwork (listed left to right) : There is No Steak Left in Town (Acrylic) , I Am Still Here (Acrylic), Patty Melt with Grilled Onion Looks Crazy Good (Acrylic)

An abstract fingerpainter, Kamelyta was born in Malaysia, but currently is living in the Inland Empire. Only recently did she discover her talent for finger painting while experimenting with leftover acrylic paint. Her art is whimsical, bold, unique, classy, quirky and definitely colorful.

"I am not a deep person, a poet or a philosopher. I just love playing with colors intuitively. Combining and contrasting them. My emotions, feelings and fervor dictate to my finger. I don’t think or ponder or meditate. I let go and the colors tell the stories of my heart. My hunger, my sadness, my anger; my desire, my love, my happiness; my pride, my regrets and my longing are all in my art. Every piece is a story told through colors. I become alive. I am happy!" www.kamelyta.com • 69greencamel@gmail.com
