I wrote about the colorful work of artist Roeqiya Fris some years ago and have been adoring her new creations that have been passing on my Instagram feed since then. Inspired by Arab culture, fashion and nature, Roeqiya’s paintings are rich of countless colors, patterns and details that carry a magical, wanna-be-there kind of atmosphere.. Love!
Roeqiya Fris is a Dutch-Egyptian illustrator who graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy of Visual Arts in 2005. She has worked as a fine art teacher, ran a creative workshop company called Fris Projecten for 6 years before focusing on her own gorgeous paintings. You can find her work available on print in her Etsy shop (she is currently on a break but will be back on May 10th).
