Audrey Kawasaki

As I was surfing blogs, I discovered Audrey Kawasaki, an artist. What I liked in her work was the blend of the manga style and Art Nouveau on wood. I am a fan of Manga and although I don't particularly like the composition of Art Nouveau, I like the defined outlines and the colour palettes. The fact that she does it on sheets of wood and shows the wood grain through the artwork, I love it. Here is her bio form her website:

The themes in Audrey Kawasaki's work are contradictions within themselves. Her work is both innocent and erotic. Each subject is attractive yet disturbing. Audrey's precise technical style is at once influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau. Her sharp graphic imagery is combined with the natural grain of the wood panels she paints on, bringing an unexpected warmth to enigmatic subject matter.

The figures she paints are seductive and contain an air of melancholy. They exist in their own sensually esoteric realm, yet at the same time present a sense of accessibility that draws the observer to them. These mysterious young women captivate with the direct stare of their bedroom eyes.
