Let’s dive into the world of Ana Elisa Egreja, where we can spend time with her animal friends in their fancy homes, her Pandas colour co-ordinate themselves on the bed while Pigs and Flamingos can be found cavorting in the salon. This Brazilian realist painter creates humorous scenes, with fantastic attention to detail, the contrasting patterns and composition form landscapes of eye candy that invite you to laugh and play. Egreja works in Sao Paulo where she paints her “interiors”. Have a look at her flickr.
Psychedelic candy-coated colour madness- fun fun fun I say!
Japanese artist d’Holbachie Yoko is a master at creating rich, multicoloured and stimulating worlds populated by decorative, playful, cute and yet mysterious and manic creatures. With these digital artworks, Yoko manages to use colour intensely, rousing the eye of the viewer without overdoing the viewers experience.
And her whimsical creatures?
d’Holbachie Yoko expresses her work as follows: “Animals, insects, fish, and toys… These things used to be close to me when I was a child. I like to take these in my design. Maybe it is because my childhood memory is vivid, or I am still childish. I love long tentacle-like shapes with stripes or dappled patterns, such as octopus tentacles. They look as if they are presenting something gently, or as if they are looking for something.”
Enjoy the journey into one bold, playful universe of colour.
