Maus Haus

The Australian artist known as Maus Haus on Instagram (who would otherwise like to remain anonymous) is one of my new favorite painters. Her unique color palette and technical skill (ability to create large flat areas of color) is off the charts! Each of her pieces is precise and possesses an overall symmetry. Symmetry can mean that an image is exactly the same on either side of an imaginary line drawn in the middle of the piece. This balance can also be achieved by using the colors and shapes to draw the eye in equal measure on either side of this center line.
