‘Ghost of a Hummingbird’ is an original Painting on Glass by contemporary artist VeeBee. The piece is signed by the artist.


Contemporary artist VeeBee is something of a mystery: keeping her identity concealed, VeeBee lets her work talk for itself, distinct from the ‘cult of the artist’ complex that informs so much in the world of modern art. Engimatic though she may be, there is no puzzle as far as her work is concerned. Her mixed media pieces, which use collage and bricolage techniques, as well as digital forms and painstakingly hand applied detailing, are bold, striking and cutting edge.



‘Ghost of a Hummingbird’ depicts a multicoloured hummingbird, its wings spread in the instant of flight. A closer look reveals that VeeBee has crafted the exotic bird from a stencilled, striated composition of pigment against glass, to create an illusionistic sense of movement. To finish the piece, VeeBee has splattered specks of multicoloured paint around the hummingbird, adding breathtaking dynamism and texture.




About The Artist - VeeBee


Veebee contemporary artist living and working in the UK. she create mixed media and collage pieces, inspired by pop and urban art themes, and sell original pieces, limited edition prints, and offer artwork commissions.


Veebee enjoys the challenge of exploring new and inventive techniques, to create pieces that are balanced and simple, but technically complicated. She is always experimenting; trying out lots of different materials that she has not used before, in ways that are less common. Consequently, although she like to choose subjects that fascinate her such as: beautiful people, butterflies and birds, she find more pleasure in focusing on developing specific techniques and trying out new forms of media.

Veebee's favourite medium is spray paints. They are truly versatile and she adore the smooth and uniform finish that they can create. However, what she love most about spray paints is the challenge in using them.

'Unlike the control one has over a traditional paint-brush, you rarely have the same level of control when it comes to using a spray-can. Pointing the nozzle over a delicate piece that I have been working on for days or weeks is a terrifying, but truly thrilling moment for me. Especially as I like perfection; if I make a mistake, I will have to go back to the beginning and start again from scratch.

My work begins with a vague image in my mind. I spend weeks or months considering the possibilities of developing it. I then start sketching my basic ideas and begin to plan the stages for its creation. As soon as I have a clear idea of how the finished artwork should look, I will begin the process. The hard part is that things rarely go as planned, especially if I am working with unpredictable materials. Sometimes it takes several attempts to achieve the finish I desire. I have had pieces that took over eighteen months to complete, but normally the process takes around four to eight weeks, depending on the complexity of the design.' - Veebee
