Today I wanted to spotlight one of my all-time favorite artists: Audrey Kawasaki! I discovered her while I was going to college for art illustration, and she has definitely been a huge inspiration to me and my own artwork throughout the years. Her beautiful paintings are mostly based off of manga and Art Noveau, and this brilliant combination is what led to her seductive yet innocent portrayals of young women.
I’ve always found her female driven pieces so empowering along with her unique technical approach to painting. The soft washes of color look beautiful against the wood canvas that she normally paints on, and her delicate color palette takes the femininity of her work to another level. I really encourage anyone and everyone to support Audrey’s incredible work!
