ArtParadise by Artist Katherine Tromans

What does paradise look like? For artist Katherine Tromans, the subject of her final degree project became a collaboration between herself and the imagination of the people she asked this very question to. Working to literally illustrate others’ ideas of “paradise”, her dreamy pastel-hued paintings culminated in morphed landscapes that are convincingly paradisaical.

ArtPattern and Peach Fuzz: French Illustrator Elodie

Our favorite illustrators? The ones who are obsessed with fashion like French illustrator Elodie Nadreau!

Known simply as Elodie, this “Parisienne” has rolled her love for fashion and talent for digitally-embellished drawings into one perfect little package of color, texture, and flirtatious line-work. Elodie’s work emits a soft and sensual ambiance with subtle layers of pattern often weaving in and out of the main subject. Favoring female portraiture Elodie is inspired by what’s happening on the runways and magazines, and I love how she imparts a stippled peach-fuzz effect over much of her work, giving the pieces a warm, almost buzzing quality.

ArtFood Art by Hong Yi: Oh I See Red

Artist Hong Yi, nicknamed “Red,” loves to share photos of her food. But this isn’t like the picture of your friend’s dinner that you saw on Instagram last night! From whimsical renditions of classic stories, to Banksy-inspired plates, Red captures it all using food as her medium. It is clear that a tremendous amount of imagination and attention to detail go into each piece, combining food and art in a way that is mouth-watering and magical. Red doesn’t just see everyday objects as they are, she sees the extraordinary things that they could be, and the resulting food art is simply stunning! Check out Red’s website and Instagram to see more of her inventive works of art made from food, flowers, and so much more.
