Anastassia Elias is most famous for her mini dioramas in toiler paper rolls and other visual art, but I’m partial to these two installations she did for a group project.
Just your average transparent string elephant on a tightrope. NBD.
The goal was to decorate the streets with whimsical, unexpected designs. Mission accomplished, I’d say.
Two amazing pieces from Sazha Gazova (@pam_malina):
Stephanie Law paints gorgeous, lush nature scapes.
From the artist bio:
Stephanie Law’s work is an exploration of mythology mixed with her personal symbolism. Her art journeys through surreal otherworlds, populated by dreamlike figures, masked creatures, and winged shadows.
The fantastical permeates through the visions, and you get a sense that this is a world that underlies our own, when viewed with a desire for beauty and a shifted perception.
Archetypes, the basis for the universal appeal of mythological concepts, are one of the defining inspirations for her imagery. This is mingled with the movement of dance.
Stephanie has been a dancer for almost two decades, and she uses that experience of how the human body moves and emotes to create a bridge into her artwork so that not only do the humans dance across the page, but the very branches of her trees seem to move with a sinuous grace, and the arrangement of inanimate elements has a choreographed rhythm and flow.
