I went to the Saatchi gallery recently, here are a couple of artists/works that I really liked. The first is Ximena Garrido-Lecca's 'The Followers' - an installation on a large wall in the gallery. This piece is a reproduction of a South American burial wall. I like it because it combines a lot of themes I find interesting, inspiring and try to include in my work - beauty, death, religion and family...

The second is Mustafa Hulusi's 'Exstacy Almond Blossom' pair of works. I love the amazing contrast between the two sides of each piece - abstract/figurative, this is heightened when you see them in person due to the large size.
