I was delighted to receive an email by artist Eliza Frye introducing me to her work which captivated me right from the start! Her fragile, yet expressive and poetic figures draw you into their mysterious worlds. Lovely use of bold and vibrant colors and a very interesting experimentation with negative space!
As I read in her official site: “The artist has studied Character Animation at California Institute of the Arts, holds a BA in Japanese Literature from UCLA and is currently working on her MFA in Creative Writing at Calarts. She also owns Miss Scarlet in the Parlor, an art gallery in Echo Park and teaches animation at Inner-City Arts through Calarts' Community Arts Partnership.”
Don’t forget to take a look at Eliza Frye’s online shop for an inspiring collection of both prints and original art!
As the artist notes: “For me, inspiration comes from many places. Ealing Studios, French and Italian Cinema, along with music, theatre and dance.”
Check out her online shop at etsy for gorgeous prints.
I certainly trust her taste!
The artist lives and creates in Portland while her artwork has been exhibited in galleries worldwide and her illustrations have been presented in a wide range of design publications.
Italian painter Vincenzo Rizzo creates portraits filled with bold power! His mixed media collection is a series of expressive portraits where color and texture combined with fantastic, almost liquid drawings and a vivid imagination, give you the impression that they’ve literally captured a woman’s soul!
The artist has finished his Fine Art studies and is specialized in visual arts. He has participated in numerous exhibitions in Italy and keeps experimenting with various techniques.
A new entry in my top fav list!
Her watercolors and acrylics on wood travel the viewer in magical worlds of visual pleasure and mystery. I particularly appreciate the balance in her color palette and the stylized attributes of her illustrated characters.
Browsing through her online shop one can find a variety of whimsical illustrations. Imagine her prints in light colored wooden or white matte frames. Pure pleasure!
The artist’s studies in fashion design have obviously influenced her artwork! Femme fatales in bold colors, mysterious gazes, feminine patterns and a glam atmosphere are key elements in Peggy’s illustration world!
Peggy is currently living and creating in London and besides drawing she is also creating fabulous collages. For more, take a look at her Peggy Wolf Design shop in Etsy.
