YOUNG MUSE

"The mystic beauty of feminine charms is sublime. It flourishes as gradually as a flower in its own hour. There is a real magic in how a girl turns into a beautiful woman.  It happens unseen from day to day, from one hour to another. The enchanted muses of this series of paintings are perfections of a very special kind. Their beauty is so fragile, exquisite, naïve, all of which make them perfect in their imperfections.  

There is an entire world full of wonders hidden inside of every girl. Magic spells of intangible reveries and unexpected dreams surround her small universe. Every character of this series is full of such magic, wonders, small parcels of spellbound feelings, souvenirs from childhood and adult-like dreams. 

It is about all shapes and forms that love can take. It is about those warm feelings that are so dear to us. Lovely, kind muses look at you from the rainbow watercolours inviting you into these special small worlds, inspired by beauty and love. Each of them hides its secret that turns everyday life into an enchanted story".

 

 

MODERN MUSE SERIES

MODERN MUSE

The visual aesthetic of the Modern Muse painting collection stems from the desire to preserve grace and elegance.  To create this series which solely uses natural colours, Ksenia Sapunkova delved into an imaginary, vivid world and brought its muses to life. The two crucial elements for making this collection feel like a coherent set were mild transparency in the layers, and a look at the relationship between the fashion elements and the woman's portrait. A quintessence of this romantic and sensual series is the duet of expressive pencil strokes and fluid ink shapes. The fresh cut collages grace each artwork with a futuristic, sharp and clean feel. Dive into this unique experience.
