Every element in a pop-art piece is an exciting and dramatic expression of its content. The artwork further elevates in value when the inspirations and emotions behind it can be seen crystal clear. And this is what Melissa Falconer, also known as M. Falconer, a self-taught virtual artist from Toronto, brings to the market through her artwork.
A passion and a dream that started back in 2015 in a university dorm room are now coming true for Melissa. She started selling commissioned paintings to her friends for around $100 each, but today she runs a whole business around her idea and inspires people to believe that their dreams can take flight too.
Being a Black businesswoman from a Jamaican background is what led Melissa to create pop art paintings inspired by Black culture. The message behind the artwork is empowering, uplifting, and inspirational.
Us humans tend to be strongly affected by portraits more than any other art form, and this is something Melissa understands. Looking at portraits of other humans ignites feelings of nostalgia and a certain degree of reliability. Art works as an emotional catalyst through that process.
We live in a world where social media has taken over our lives, and various artists have used this platform to show their presence to the world, show their talent, and influence and inspire others. Melissa shares her process on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube, linked below, in an effort to empower other artists and inspire viewers alike.
Not just that, her clients and buyers are thrilled to receive her vibrant artwork and have it in their spaces. One such client has reviewed Melissa’s artwork on her website and said, “The prints are high quality and visually stunning pieces of work. The size fits perfectly on the wall and is easily a statement piece”. Another said, “My prints turned out amazing! I would order more prints in a heartbeat. Melissa’s art is so beautiful, and the colors are so vibrant!”
