Paula Duro would have no problem joining the team at Disney or Pixar with these colorful and imaginative illustrations. Featuring indigenous people in magical settings, the Argentina-based artist uses acrylic paint to dazzle viewers’ eyes and put them in a carefree child-like mood. Looking through Duro’s work and not having a smile on your face is a near impossibility.

Interestingly, Paula Duro uses acrylic paint to emulate other media like pastels and airbrushes. It gives her pictures a collaborative quality as she mishmashes rendering styles in a harmonious and visually pleasing way. Seeing a girl seamlessly transition from a flat illustration into a more three-dimensional figure sure is a trippy sight. And the way she always tries to incorporate the beautiful night sky into her work is definitely one of my favorite qualities about her paintings.
