Winter is in full swing on this side of the Earth and winter botanicals are very much in. The following Instagram artists, with their unique perspective on the subject, are my choice for this week.
Clare and Josh, a young couple behind Forest Culture Design @forestculturedesign, have established a brand which merges the woodworking shop and an art studio in the best possible way. Inspired by nature, the couple’s creations include wall art (prints and original paintings), hand-painted wood ornaments and DIY kits. They also teach a Skillshare class on mastering the gift wrapping art.
Chilean graphic designer Viviana Gonzalez @vivigonzalezart pursues a wide range of subjects, from abstracts and landscapes, to portraits, still life and botanical sketches. Spanning from monochromatic to multi-colour, from vivid to earthy, geometric to organic and minimalist to ornate, Viviana has created a lavish tapestry of art explorations.
Illustrator based in Russia, Anna Bezgodova @bezgodova_ must have a shelf full of wonderful sketchbooks, brimming with captivating urban sketches, maritime drawings, studies of a wide array of objects and botanical illustrations. Anna’s mastery of pen and wash technique, as well as her keen eye for an immersive perspective, result in some of the most interesting, graceful work.
