Hibiscus Fish

It would seem like I have become a Sunday blogger but I guess this comes with actually having a job and trying to have a social life too.

Anyway I’ll make it up with really great art (at least I think so), starting with this super illustration/mixed media print by Taiwanese artist Lim Zhi Wei, who goes by the name of Limzy. She works mainly with leaves and flowers, both on paper and as installation.

Her Blooming Fish series is probably my favorite, and you can check it out here. I had such a hard time picking only one for the blog. I like this series because I think it’s one of her most original artwork. Her more fashion-oriented Flower Works is beautiful as well.

If you like her work, you can follow her on wordpress here and check out her shop here.

Chocolate Flowers

So I don’t know exactly who made these crazy amazing chocolate flowers; but I know that it’s someone from Savour school and that you can learn to make them (provided you live in Australia and are very rich).

I know this sounds like a promotional post but it isn’t. I found their account through instagram and what they do looks amazing. If you’re really into it they even have online classes. Anyway if you’d like to check it out here is their website.

Hydrangeas and Swallow

I saw this woodblock print by Hokusai (from an ink and color on paper illustration) at the MFA during the Hokusai exhibition. This piece from 1833 struck me as my favorite among all the artworks that were displayed, so I decided to share it here. It’s still part of the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, as was all the content of this exhibitions, but it is not currently on display.

Mandala 5

DSC_1111I colored this mandala illustrated by Montserrat Vidal in 2015. This illustration is inspired by designs from the Casa Lleó Morrera in Barcelona, on of the buildings that are an icon of modernism in the city. You can learn more about this house here.
