The collections entitled ASK A WOMAN and INAMORATA are odes to the women who inspire the artist, which she expresses through her signature patterns and vibrant colours. The artist observes the lives of different women and illustrates them through her art form to highlight her Beauty in Diversity mantra. The collections celebrate famous women as well as women realized by the artist.

ASK A WOMAN portrays women from all walks of life and is inspired by a woman’s strengths, weaknesses, wit, laughter, joys and her tears.

INAMORATA pays tribute to exceptional women from history and from modern times, revelling in their beauty, boldness, and refusal to conform to displaced norms.  

Having created the revolutionary method of photographic imagery with oil, acrylic and giclée printmaking mediums to depict emotion, each of Kristel Bechara’s pieces has a story and speaks a thousand words.

The paintings in this collection were made available in alternative proportionate sizes.
