It's Nice That describes the work of Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva in just the right way, "To me her drawings tell a story in which the world has been taken over by perspective-distoring chemicals and the already-contaminated children have been evacuated to far off lands where the plants are large and kindly, the owls bring light and the gravity levels are low." Otherworldly in a drug-addled way, Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva's illustrations are as mind-boggling as they are spell-binding.

Born in Ufa, Russia, and based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva has done work for Rolling Stones, GQ, ELLE and more. It's not surprising that her surreal touch is in demand. Her unique perspective engages people for many reasons. One of which is the sheer detail used in each artwork.
