Ilona Sampovaara

Ilona Sampovaara paints fabulously kitschy, anthropormorphic cats and dogs (as well as some still life and human girls).

Some of them evoke what I can only call a rather brilliant discomfort for the viewer (why isn’t there a term for the opposite of uncanny valley, meaning the sense of unease that can arise when something is incredibly far from natural looking?).

And some are just sweet n’ silly.

She has some great postcard sets (I’m partial to this one).
