“I actually grow most of the flowers I paint (or at least gather them in the fields around the studio). Just rose bushes alone, I have nearly 50 different kinds in my garden. Today was a lovely autumn day to do reference photoshoots before the flowers die for the winter. Since I myself plant, grow and water them, every flower I paint feels a bit like a portrait of someone I personally know, even if it's just a small blossom in the background done with a few brushstrokes.”
What a beautiful secret! @janabrike and her paintings are simply everything we love in a single nutshell: The subjects, the composition, the environment she creates… The work of Jana feels like magic that keeps us under its spell! ✨
‘Danae’, mother of Perseus, by @chamo_san. Chamo depicts the moment of Zeus appearing to Danae in the night as golden rain and impregnating her. She gives birth to Perseus, the legendary hero who slew Medusa. I love the relation of abstract and figurative elements in Chamo’s work: The best of two worlds!
Follow @ruan.jia in a cyberpunk-fantasy universe and join the protagonists for the next adventure! Ruan Jia is a concept artist and illustrator who has contributed his visuals to video games like @halo, @warcraft, @guildwars2, and @diablo_3hk. His amazingly gentle use of colors and their striking combinations have caught my eyes, and indeed Ruan is one of my favorites in his field!

"As a spiritual person, nature is very important to me as it is a source of inspiration that never stops giving; constantly changing and evolving, each phase being as beautiful as the last. Feathers are my way to bring those elements into my work. What I love most is no two feathers are the same, yet all are as beautiful as each other in their own ways, which goes hand in hand with the human race." - Jay Briggs.
INSIDE ISSUE 35 // "My art is about taking a stroll down memory lane, for better or for worse. By working through a piece both compositionally and creatively, I can release steam and unwind tightly woven psychological knots."
