Kathy Murysina Draws Trippy and Endlessly Fascinating Women

Trippy, wild and beautiful are words that only begin to hint at the mesmerizing illustrations of Kathy Murysina. The Saint Petersburg-based artist often produces images that are technically adept and surreal. Who else can you name off the top of your head that has drawn a woman with a kangaroo pouch? Or images of tattoos and piercings seemingly wanting to run away from their owners? And the fact that Murysina is equally adept at analog art as she is with digital media only enhances my admiration for the Russian artist.

Kathy Murysina also has an impressive collection of fashion illustrations that can be found in her Behance Network portfolio. Murysina's penchant for psychedelic patterns permeates the prints on the clothing displayed by her barely dressed subjects and fashionistas would likely regret not checking out the inspired gallery.
