Artist: Stina Persson | Location: Stockholm, Sweden| Type: Watercolour Illustrations
Step inside the studio of artist Stina Persson. Her colorful illustrations have long been a favorite of mine, so I was extremely excited to find this post to take a sneak peak inside her studio ! Stina says her work is about ‘making the ugly prettier and the beautiful a little edgier’. She creates her work by hand; using inks, watercolor dyes and colored pencils, and sometimes Mexican cut paper. The work is then scanned, and given a digital touch-up. Stina was born in Sweden, and has lived and studied in Tokyo, Florence and New York. Today, she lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. I will be showing you more of her work in our post later today. So make sure you stick by.

Me and a friend have been experimenting with photography with our new DSLR’s, you can check out our first shoot at a workshop here. In the meantime, check out these amazing multiple exposure photographs by photographer Doug Keyes, capturing city life from all over the world. Which one is your favorite? I can’t decide between first and last image.
Gorgeous superheroes themed woman, painted by British hyper-realist artist JKB Fletcher.
Pep Ventosa‘s style of deconstructing and reconstructing photographic images to create new mosaic-like works is like nothing I’ve ever seen before, very beautiful artwork. His process involves taking as many as 101 photographs of a single subject and then piecing them together like a jigsaw puzzle, creating an entirely new visual experience. I am in love with the image of La Pedrera in Barcelona – I think Antoni Gaudí would be proud. What about you? What is your favorite?
Embroidered art has been everywhere lately but I’ve been most impressed by Singaporean artist Izziyana Suhaimi‘s work. I can’t get over how skillfully she is able to incorporate ornate embroidery techniques with her own pencil drawings and watercolors, pushing the boundaries of traditional and popular culture. Simply beautiful.
