I'm loving these paintings by Caia Koopman; each doe-eyed painted pin-up is covered in tattoos and oozes sensuality. We've seen several digital takes on modern pin-up girls, but these paintings are immaculate.

Caia Koopman graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a bachelor's degree in fine arts. Since then, she's spent time in the snowboarding and skateboarding scenes; these influences are present throughout her work. See the gallery above for more samples of her work.

Implications - It's clear that Caia Koopman has a clear affinity for nature, the female spirit, and natural beauty. This gives her illustrations a special touch of femininity and class that is both alluring and intriguing. Koopman's portfolio shows an artist with a lot of room for growth, and a bright future in the art world.
