Eiko Ojala

 

Let this be a lesson in always reading the fine print, because these pieces by Estonian artist Eiko Ojala aren’t made from paper. The depth and texture of each one is created digitally, raw edges and all. Ojala loves working with light and shadow while keeping his artworks minimal and focused on the beauty of shapes.

Anna Deligianni

 

Athens, Greece-born illustrator Anna Deligianni‘s current work focuses on mobility, while the focus on detail carries over from previous work in engraving. Every bit of us has a story, doesn’t it?

Be it physical migration or a psychological journey, people are always struggling to leave their current situation to find a place where they can finally be at peace. I often use eyes in my paintings to symbolize the fact that there is always someone watching you, traveling in the same way as you are, sometimes as a friend and sometimes judging you, feeling empathy and companionship.

Paige Jiyoung Moon

Just when everyday life seems to be exceptionally boring, a superbly talented artist like Paige Jiyoung Moon pops up on my radar as a reminder that it’s anything but. In fact, it’s quite beautiful. Paige’s slice-of-life paintings and drawings turn mundane tasks like doing the dishes and going to the laundry mat into well thought out scenes full of color and detail.

Reeta Ek

I have a huge crush on Reeta Ek, the Helsinki-based artist who you may know from her work for Marimekko. I love her print work just as much as her textile designs, and would happily display any of them on my walls or my body.
