Mi-Kyung Choi…

  Happy February! This is the work of Korean illustrator Mi-Kyung Choi, also known as, Ensee. I came across one of her illustrations while perusing Pinterest yesterday and I was awestruck. Lovely and delicate, her work reminds me of one of my favourite artists, Hsiao-Ron Cheng. Visit her website for more. Images found here.

Henrietta Harris…

This is the work of New Zealand artist and illustrator Henrietta Harris. Many of Harris’ surreal portraits masterfully obscure or mask part of the faces in her work. Her soft colours and flowing lines give her work a very dream-like quality. Simply beautiful! Harris exhibits all over New Zealand, Australia, London and New York. Her […]

This is the work of Warsaw-based artist and freelance designer Agata Wierzbicka. Her lovely illustrations are inspired by people watching and everyday […]

Each portrait in the series is about a personal experience, but as a whole the work aims “to evoke questions around the underlying tensions and reactions to the politics of the feminism.” Love it! Powerful […]

Her mixed media collages are made of paper, pencil, gouache, acrylic and sometimes fabric. On her website Sigmundsdottir states… ” I am fascinated with the woman, her mind and body. The […]

Nettie Wakefield…

If you haven’t noticed by the majority of my posts, I am a sucker for portrait art! So today I thought I would shake things up a bit… reversed portrait art! These pencil drawings are by British artist Nettie Wakefield. Wakefield’s work is incredibly detailed, using traditional techniques with a unique perspective. A live demonstration […]

Andrea Castro (again)…

Here’s another update of a fantastic artist I wrote about earlier this year (read it here). These paintings are the work of Spanish artist Andrea Castro. Castro recently did an interview with Creep magazine, where they asked how she developed her signature style. She said… “As I was learning how to draw and paint I […]

Alexandra Levasseur (again)…

Oh my! Breathtaking paintings by Canadian artist Alexandra Levasseur! I wrote about Levasseur at the beginning of this year (read it here) and I love her work, but I love her new paintings even more! A few of her most recent works were just exhibited at the COA Gallery in Montreal for their group show […]
