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!
I can’t believe it has been more than more than a month since I last posted something. So much happened in the last weeks of the year and after that horrible and exhausting Instagram hack I have been putting all my time in my pottery for a little while, which felt good. But opening my computer and writing these words feels even better<3 Happy to be back!
Latest illustration crush: rich and colorful collages by award winning artist and illustrator Martin Haake. With so much happening in each of these beautiful pieces, Martin’s work tells little stories and surprise me with details the longer I look at them. The birdwatcher in the first image is my favorite!
I would love to spend a week or so in one of Ashley Amery’s dazzling illustrations; swim in the ocean and discover the beauty that hides in the waters, get lost in a forest filled with countless colors and playful shapes or meet one of the magical creatures that’s hiding between the gorgeous details of her work. So amazing!
At midnight, when everyone is sleeping and the world is quiet, artist Herikita creates dazzling illustrations that are rich of colors and delightful details. With a strong narrative style and sometimes combined with striking words, I constantly find myself staring at her pieces, absorbing all the gorgeous botanicals, animals and characters.. so beautiful!
You can find a selection of her work available on print and other items at Society6.
