Every month, beautiful.bizarre chooses one of our favourite artists to TAKE OVER our social media for the day. On 15 August Dilka Nissyrova better known as Dilkabear took over beautiful.bizarre and we loved seeing some her inspirations.
We are so excited to present today’s Take Over artist. Dilka Nassyrova’s dreamy style is easily identifiable. Her paintings often melancholic, her subjects never smiling – but Dilka says “they couldn’t be referred to as sad”. Her subjects provoke a range of emotions, mirroring the world around them. We are happy to present some of her favourite works to get a better insight on what inspires her to paint such wonderful pieces. Over to you Dilka!
Dilka: This is one of my first paintings that I’m really attached to “Mein Lieber Oskar”. It’s a portrait of Oskar Matzerath from the “Tin Drum”. It’s my favorite book, I think it’s one of the books that influenced me most.
“The Wedding Party” by Aron Wiesenfeld. I love it because it’s beautiful and scary at the same time!
“The Garden of Earthly Delights” by Hieronymus Bosch. For me it’s the most beautiful and amazing painting that has ever been created.
“Tenant Farmer” by Andrew Wyeth. I really love the mood in the painting.
“The Monk by the Sea” by Caspar David Friedrich. I like it because there are so many feelings in this painting!
“Creatures of Saintly Disguise” by JennyBird Alcantara. I love Jennybird’s magic world and her use of color is just amazing!
“The Wounded Deer” by Frida Kahlo. She is one of my very favorite artists. Her paintings are very emotional. There is a lot of suffering and pain, but they still have light and a lot of strength.
“Hunter in the Snow” by Pieter Breugel the Elder. I fell in love with this painting when I saw it for the first time in a book. I think I was about 3 years old. I can’t really explain why exactly, I love the winter landscape and the contrast in this painting.
This is the last piece selected by Dilkabear for her Take Over on the beautiful.bizarre socials. Thank you so much Dilka for taking the time to find some of your inspirations to share with our followers. We hope you enjoyed seeing Dilka’s favourite works as much as we did!
