Lisa Krannichfeld | The Glass Menagerie

Eightweb Fourweb Nineweb Oneweb sixteenweb Twelveweb

Blurred and colourful portraits that seem to express feelings more than physical traits. I simply love them.

Lisa Krannichfeld studied biology and learned how to collect insects by killing them in a way as to not damage their bodies and posing them to display their anatomy. For this series she decided not to kill but to capture human emotions, using watercolours as a tool to portrait sentiments: intense and diverse. Then she finishes by adding a layer of resin, readying the “specimens for display”.

Jana Brike | Milk and Blood

These beautifully creepy illustrations create strange feelings situated between attraction and repulsion. I love them though, and perhaps this is the reason why.

Jana Brike is a Latvian artist who has been creating beautiful art for years. Recognized since her early years, she’s been extensively exhibiting throughout the world. Jana takes her inspiration mainly from local folklore, children books, imaginative soviet animation films and supernaturally real classical painting.

Audrey Kawasaki

I have no memory of how I first saw Audrey Kawasaki’s work, but that it was years ago. I just loved (and still do) her delicate lines and the fact that her images have been drawn on wood. So pretty!

Audrey Kawasaki likes working with contradictory themes: innocence vs erotism, attraction vs the oddity that transpires through her work. She takes her inspiration from quite opposite sources as well: manga comics and Art Nouveau.

Aleksandra Waliszewska

Ok I might have an inappropriate interest towards macabre but you’ll have to admit that Aleksandra Waliszewska’s work doesn’t let you be indifferent!

Aleksandra Waliszewska is a polish artist who thrives in representing gothic scenes and portraits. She takes her inspiration from the art of the Renaissance and from there she uses either an intricate or more simple brush to mix inspiration from the past with her own world.

Cendrine Rovini

When I first saw Cendrine Rovini’s work, it seemed to me like somebody has illustrated my dreams (I do have weird dreams, I know). Delicate and feminine, her hand is light and her imagination abundant.

Cendrine Rovini is a French artist who uses the vocabulary of dreams to create her images. Linked with nature, animals and shamanistic beliefs, Rovini’s images “insist about the necessary conjunction between all the living figures for a real harmony and beauty.”
