We love folk art but have neglected posting creative talents so today we introduce Romanian illustrator Madalina Andronic, who draws inspiration from traditional fairy tales and Slavic folklore. The illustrations of the Bucharest-based artist is rich in detail, bright colors and patterns. She tells us a little bit about herself on an interview with Krishka-Studio:
“I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, so I guess the art was a sure thing for me. But as a child, I would flirt with other artistic directions too, like dancing or singing or theatre, so there must have been times when “ballerina” or “pop singer” trumped “painter”. However, with time, things cleared up and I decided to give my pencils and papers their rightful place in my heart. Rest assured, I was never a ‘next big thing’ for the science world :)”
You can see more of her work on her website, Facebook, Instagram and Behance.

Marcello Velho is an England-based graphic artist known for his experimental and ambiguous compositions. Our attention, however, is focused on his masterful floral abstractions. Wish we could find more information about these designs and the artist but for now we should just view and admire his work.
You can follow the artist on his website, Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram.
