Visual storyteller @dashapears.art envisions minimal compositions with a surreal twist: Her pieces are both aesthetically pleasing and thought-provoking, allowing the viewers to explore their thoughts and interpretations. She offers us space to see her work from a personal stance without enforcing a particular narrative or truth.
Dasha collaborated with model @nisakatrina, make-up artist @estenomen, and hairstylist @tracey.idehen for this beautiful piece.
“I decided that I will let our little friend add a little something to all my paintings. It feels less alone this way, and it takes away the pressure.”
Just a casual Sunday in the house of @iamclaudiasix: Little friend enjoying a painting session! What a beautiful way to escape reality for a hot minute and dive into a peaceful imaginary world. We cannot wait to join your next painting sessions, Claudia! 🖤
‘Melty Kitty’ is @camilladerrico’s first painting of 2022, and what a cute and nostalgic start it is! She shares in the caption: “I adore Hello Kitty (more like obsessed lol), so I couldn’t resist painting her with my other love; rainbows! 🌈 These two icons in my life bring me so much happiness, and I hope this piece brings you lots of joy as well.”
For all the Hello Kitty lovers and fans of Camilla’s work, we have even more good news for you: You can call this cutie your own by purchasing a print in the shop; just head over to her page for more info! Happy 2022!

Our firsts are always memorable: 20 years ago, @handiedan started to work as a self-employed artist. This collage called ‘Pin-Up Tree’ (2007) was her first pin-up oriented piece - and the rest is history!
Miss Handiedan creates a “complex cut and paste mixture of digital and highly detailed sculptural hand cut collages, complimented with augmented reality and conscientiously collected antique ornamental frames.” The versatile artist explores on her creative journey several mediums, including ceramics, drawings and murals.
‘Interflow’ was created in the lockdown and captures the feelings and the energy of this uncertain and silent time. @stephrew shares in the caption: “This will forever be my lockdown painting. It’s about a feeling I’ve had these past weeks, I can’t really explain it very well, but I think lies somewhere between hope and despair!” Can you relate? I do!
To watch @rolandmikhail and witness his working process is simply mindblowing. This video hints about the attention the artist dedicates to each tiny detail and how he achieves to create such intricate and delicate compositions. Roland has been working on this particular piece since 2016.
