In her illustrations, Daria Hlazatova portrays characters who exist in a complicated world full of drama and intrigue.
The Ukrainian artist explains that she grew up in a quiet town where life was dull and predictable, and that is what inspired her to start drawing people living imaginative lives full of excitement. Several of the images in her collection can actually be identified as characters in plays, ballets, operas and classic novels. For example, we can see Dorian Gray giving us a mischievous look while the designs around him hold a moon, stars and flowers. Another portrait features the beauties from Swan Lake surrounded with jewels and frills.
Daria Hlazatova creates illustrations that are theatrical and have a flair for drama.
